The orchids of the genus Phalaenopsis are
probably better known as the moth orchids. The are many different
colors of the flowers in this genus. We have a few pots of the white
ones. The flower stems have just come out this month (November 1998),
and will need another month to grow. We plant two big plants together
last summer. With 2-3 new flower stems and 5 old stems, we can expect
to see 40-50 flowers sometime before Christmas and last at least after
next Chinese New Year. Will definitely show pictures later!
