Taking Home Stragglers

Paphiopedilum henryanum 'Arnie's Big Boy'. These orchids are native to Southeast Asia and grow in leaf littler under trees.

Today was the last day of the orchid show. Having enterred an orchid in the show, against my better judgment, I had to go back to pick it up, walking the gauntlett of show vendors with really cool orchids and end of show specials. This one followed me home. It's bigger flowered than most and fun with it's lime green, pink and polka dots. I hope you like it too.

Are you sure it’s not a hidden alien (I have nothing against aliens), to be honest I prefer your Friday orchid, but it would be a boring world if everybody has the same taste.
