The orchid shown in the picture is a Harlequin Phalaenopsis. These types of Phalaenopsis are also known for
having variations in their spot patterns from one bloom cycle to the next and from flower to flower on the same
bloom spike. Harlequin Phalaenopsis are the result of genetic mutations and have been hybridized by breeders
into some very beautiful patterns of spots and splashes of colors. With those patterns can come a large degree
of variability from flower to flower. These types of changes are usually attributable to temperature but can
also be from changes in light as well. Variations like these are part of what makes Harlequin Phals so
Another source of color variation is color enhanced orchids. They were first
available primarily in blue and now also purple and green. The flowers on these orchids vary due to the amount
of dye taken up by each bloom on the spike. The following bloom cycle they will bloom white.
“This fall I religiously followed your advice, creating an environment of shortened
days and lower temps in order to encourage blooming...I was successful. FINALLY!! Thank you, thank you!!
Both of my plants decided to bloom and they look beautiful. I wanted to share the good news and
my gratitude with you. Thanks again!”Laurie J.
“The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been
buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even
smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.”
