Sunday Funday! Browse our latest orchid selection at brookside-orchids.com
A little winter weather can't stop me from looking for orchids. Check out these puttyroots (Aplectrum hyemale) with their fresh leaves. They grew those leaves only a month or two ago, taking advatage of all of the sunlight starting to reach the forest floor as leaves fall off thw trees and their herbaceous neighbors go dormant. The photosynthetic machinery of these orchids is incredibly efficient at temperatures as low as 2°C (35.6°F) to compensate for falling temperatures. Such a welcome splash of green this time of year.
Dendrobium longicornu 'Ernie,' originally collected from Nepal. This flower is notably different than cultivars from India. More amazing orchids: https://www.aeorchids.com
