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 induced by growers and one is left to guess just how they do it. Blue dye? Chemistry at the root zone? Whatever it is, they are certainly eye catching and the blue is very pretty.

That said, our best bet is 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 Phal, but rather a temporary engineering feat. Pretty but fleeting we suspect.
