Orange orchid flowers - Doritaenopsis Surf Song OX "Gold Orange"

Autumn is here!  You can tell by the coolness in the air.. everything seems just a little quieter in the fall too.. a perfect time to blog.

Here is a cool Autumn quote:

"Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons." ~Jim Bishop

Orange is the color of Autumn so I am re-sharing one of my favorite orchids called Doritaenopsis Surf Song OX "Gold Orange." The flower color changes depending on the age of the flower.  As the flowers age, the color lightens slightly.  The combination of the bright orange and bright fuchsia center beckons the orchid lover to take a closer look.. Do you think Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons? What's your favorite season?

Cattleya Green Emerald "Queen" Orchid Flowers Smell Like Bubble Gum

The orchid flowers of Cattleya Green Emerald "Queen" are hard to the touch and very fragrant!  The flowers resemble those of another species orchid called Cattleya guttata ("the spotted Cattleya orchid"). Cattleya Green Emerald "Queen"  is a bifoliate Cattleya species of orchid.  The word bifoliate means it has two leaves from when the orchid stem grows.  One plant usually produces two flowers buds that are green then open up to this spectacular orchid flower.  The orchid flowers smell like bubble gum.  As a kid I chomped on a gum called Hubba Bubba and these orchid flowers smell like that gum.. Yummy!!

Dtps. Jiaho Kitty Face "Rainbow"

Doritaenopsis Jiaho Kitty Face "Rainbow" has to be by far our most popular orchid plant in the phalaenopsis category.  The orchid flowers offer alluring color combinations of green, pink and fuchsia.  The stem on which the orchid flowers are perched bend and offer an interesting shape to the overall orchid.  The green foliage is distinct and an orchid lover who cares for these special plants can pick out a Dtps. Jiaho Kitty Face "Rainbow" when it is still in bud.  What do you think, do you like it?

Cymbidium Dorothy Stockstill "Forgotten Fruits" Orchid Flowers

In California, cymbidium orchid plants are usually grown outside under shade cloth.  The last few days have been cold in Southern California so many of the blooming cymbidiums are brought indoors in the orchid greenhouse where temperature controlled ecosystems keep these tropical plants toasty.  One such orchid plant is Cymbidium Dorothy Stockstill "Forgotten Fruits" - the delightfully fragrant cymbidium with mini cymbidium flowers.  This beauty is well protected in a warm orchid greenhouse..
