A Morning Full of New Blossoms
Saturday is water day. I was out checking out the flowers and trying to water all the nooks and crannies of the greenhouse so nothing shrivels up and dies from lack of water. I had to chuckle a little. The plant that was sold to me as Stanhopea insignis turned out to be lietzei (not often seen for sale) and the plant sold to me as guttulata turned out to be insignis. All frangrant of course. It's pretty crazy. Luckily, they're all species so you can ID them. It's actually kind of fun to do the detective work to figure out what you have. A lot of staring at flower structure. More pictures next time.
