Friday Flora

Hey Moomintroll, what kind of flower do we have this week?
Again? Yes, because that's what's blooming now. It's Dendrobium rigidum, a native of Australian mangrove swamps and Sacramento plant stands. Weird little thing.
The planter is inelegant, but works very well at keeping them happy. It could be worse; some growers find that their orchids grow very nicely on a bed of styrofoam.
