Phalaenopsis hybrids

It's started to warm up and a lot of plants are beginning to flower again.  Some parts of the UWO Campus reached up to 13C today!  Three different Phalaenopsis hybrids are in bloom.  The flowers are gorgeous and although I've posted about them before I thought I would share them again.

I didn't want to get any water on the blooms because I figured it may shorten the lifespan.  That being said the flowers are native to moist environments and have a waxy coating.  Plus water droplets add interest!  I hope you enjoy them.  If anyone knows specific varieties I'll make sure to add it to the post.  They are currently just labeled as hybrids.


  1. Nice shots. Unfortunately with the huge number of Phalaenopsis hybrids it's basically impossible to get an ID.

  2. That's pretty much what I figured. Maybe mr_subjunctive can do it!

  3. My nemesis...these plants are impossible to keep alive (at least for me).

  4. Beautiful flowers. I usually have a green thumb, but this looks like one of those plants that would get my brown thumb. Not to be wierd, but at first glance I thought I was looking at phalic hybrids. Strange mental images, I say.


Thanks for contributing!
