Violet Velvet

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 30 August 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

While my son is overseas, I have been looking after this orchid which has not flowered before. The plant was previously in a small apartment without a lot of sun, but I am lucky to have a warm north facing position for it. As a result, the orchid has now produced the lovely flowers you can see here.

Dendrobium Kingzip 'Violet Velvet' x is the orchid's identification.
