Taking Care of Orchids

A friend is getting ready for an extended trip. She asked Karen to take care of her orchids for a few months. Since they are blooming now, that’s a treat.

This is an Asiatic Slipper Orchid (Paphiopedilum maudiae – variety: coloratura), originally native to Borneo and Southeast Asia.

Notice the little face in the middle of the open bloom.
