These unexpected surprises are some of many reasons I enjoy growing-caring for-individual watering-buying and sharing orchid “stuff” with other enthusiasts. Thankfully there is a site like Slippertalk.com to share these photos with:

Very nice! And I agree that it fun to share with fellow-slipper fans. There is just something about these plants that is hard to fully appreciate unless you’ve actually watched them unfold. Thank you, Michael, for taking the time to share them with us.
