White and Purple Phalaenopsis Orchids

TGIF people! It is Friday the 13th alright! Anyhow, I got some orchids in my kitchen!

When hubby did a short trip to the grocery store last weekend, he brought these two gorgeous orchids at home. I was ecstatic! I've been longing to buy orchids long time ago, but I just can't afford and have no budget for it. Why because it is a little bit pricey. Thanks hon!

The generic name means "Phalaen-like" and is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carolus Linnaeus to a group of large moths; the flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.

They are native throughout southeast Asia from the Himalayan mountains to the islands of Polillo Palawan and Zamboanga del Norte in the island of Mindanao in the Philippines and northern Australia. Orchid Island of Taiwan is named after this genus. Little recent information about their habitat and their ecology in nature is available since little field research has been done in the last decades.

Gorgeous orchids and yes, it's pricey if you bought it with flowers already.
I started taking care of two orchids three weeks ago. I bought it from an ambulant vendor, just curious I to know if I am green-thumb and this is really a challenge.

nice A said...

very nice variety. orchids abound here in thailand like in pinas. hirap ng lng alagaan lalo na dito we stay sa condo kaya once bumili ako ng cattleyas kc gand tlga ng flowers. after nalanta flowers niya namatay din cya huhuhu!then binilhan din ako ni dear hubby from a fair. i was so happy but then after nalanta flowers niya for about a month, di na cya gaya ng dati na robust. mas ok tlga if under the trees cla ilagay kc yan ang niche nila tlga. i used to rare lots of orchids back home but under the shade of trees as in ang gaganda tlga.
ay oo nga pla thanks uli sa dalaw. sa pangasinan ako uwi at tutuloy din ako sa hometown ni manny pacquiao kababayan siya ng mr. ko eh. ay excited na ako uwi, dhemz! kaw saan ka sa pinas?

i like orchids too. i have one at home but it is already overblown. you should put eggshells to the orchids, it's a good fertilizer.

Ang thoughtful naman ng mister mo na dinalhan ka nang orchids. Buti na lang at nasa tangkay at hindi naka korona, hehehe, joke lang, walang pikunan, lol. Kidding aside, bilib na ako sa iyo mukhang walking encyclopedia ka sa maraming bagay. Marami tuloy akong natututunan sa iyo. Dati rati ang alam ko lang eh duh, ah huh, gosh at you know (ala Manny Pacquiao), lol. Ngayon nakakadinig na ako sa iyo nang scientific name. Pero ang da best pa rin sa aking scientific name eh yung gustokonangicecreamngbluebunnynisisatstrawberryshortcakenisis. Mahaba ba? Pasensiya ka na sa kakulitaan ko. Paminsan minsan kasi eh tinotopak ako, hehehe, lol. Bye muna baka kabagan ka na sa asar, ahehehe. Thanks for the scientific post. God bless you always. Babaynamunanesis.
