Orchids flowering inside my Orchidarium today!

I designed this Orchidarium in 2017; it was constructed in the early spring of 2017.  If you’re interested in the materials I’ve used, you can see the step-by-step process of my Orchidarium build here.  I thought I’d share some of these pretty orchid blooms with you.  These orchids are all in bloom inside my Orchidarium, today.

Aerangis luteoalba var. rhodosticta is a beautiful miniature, epiphytic orchid species, from Kenya and Africa.  Plants produce long, arching, or pendulous flower spikes, that feature large, white, crystalline flowers with orange-red columns or centres.  Aerangis luteoalba var. rhodosticta flowers are borne in double rows along each flower spike.  As each of the flowers open, their petals unfurl; one by one the flowers adjust themselves to be held horizontally on the plant, with their nectaries held directly below each bloom.
