Slender Sun Orchid
Slender Sun Orchid
I had observed for some time this small delicate singular plant stem with three buds. I knew it had to be an orchid - but which one? Filled with much anticipation I waited for it to flower, the days came and went - those buds did not open. Imagine my joy when at last on a warm sunny day two of the buds began to unfurl. Slender Sun Orchids are self-pollinating and only open when conditions are to their liking - sometimes the flowers may not open at all!
