Are Blue Orchids Real?

Blue Orchids
Blue Phalaenopsis Blooms

We'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 into 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.
