I wasn't planning on buying another Phalaenopsis that day but that is exactly what I did, I saw this beautiful pink spotted Phalaenopsis and just had to have it.
I actually went to Parkside to get some more Oncidium Orchids because I so enjoyed the one that I purchased there in the winter and it is doing very well in my sunny back studio window. I found this gorgeous delicate red Oncidium and just fell in love with it and decided that this one had to come home with me.
One of the colors I was hoping to find when I was there was a beautiful yellow Oncidium. There were several at the nursery, I loved this one though as the blooms were small and that is exactly what I wanted. I learned when I was at the Orchid show this year, that of all the Orchid species, the Oncidium has the truest, purest yellow.
This Orchid is one of my favorites but is not new to my house. This is "Woody" named because of the wooden planter I put her in, I've had Woody for 3 1/2 years now and back in May, I was very excited to see a spike growing up from the moss. I love the delicate color of this Orchid....
so very pretty.
