Blue Orchids

Blue OrchidWe've been getting a lot of questions lately about blue orchids. You've probably seen them in the stores too, and wondered what you were seeing. They are Phalaenopsis orchids and they do not grow that way in the wild. The color is injected into the bloom spike and it finds its way in to the flowers. They are certainly eye catching and the blue is often very pretty, yet not a natural color for a Phalaenopsis.

That pretty blue orchid today will most likely be a more common white one at the next bloom cycle. The blue orchid is not a new species of Phalaenopsis, but rather a temporary engineering feat. Pretty but fleeting.

Going On Now!

“I repotted it in the Imperial Monterey Orchid Mix that I had on hand, with a sad bloom or two still trying to hang on. Since then, it began growing new roots and leaves. The spike even began to grow/elongate, adding new buds, and rewarded me with 7 new blooms, the size of your palm. A testament that your products work wonders.”
