Dalmatian Orchid

dalmatian orchidMy mum got a special orchid last year and happily, it has bloomed again for us. It’s called the Dalmatian Orchid (Phalaenopsis I-Hsin Dalmatian).

101_1922Its first blossom, a few weeks ago, has  produced a new leaflet which you see at the top of the stalk.  This leaflet has roots.  The second set of blossoms are very beautiful.

Orchids are not easy to cultivate.  They should not get too much sunlight and should not be over-watered. They don’t need much soil either. My mum sprays her orchids and she is learning more about them each day.
