I know that I have talked before about what a rare year it’s been–snake plants that haven’t bloomed before, succulents blooming that haven’t, etc. But this is an orchid that has only bloomed twice in the ten years I’ve owned it (what does that say about my level of patience for house plants, I wonder?)
This orchid has more names than it does flowers. It is Perreira motes Leprechan ‘Haiku Mint.’ I expect because it’s a tropical orchid it needed the extreme heat we had this year to flower for me. But that’s okay. I expect extreme heat is going to be more normal going forward so I will be seeing more flowers.
