      One of my Favorite Orchids

      Produced Flowers ALL Summer and the last has now faded. I had seen these in Panama many years ago. They were often planted on Mailbox Posts or Fence Posts and just covered them! The amount of flowers were incredible. Well, I had purchased a small one but lost it to spider mites. Then a few years ago, a friend posted a pic of his and that he was trimming his back, asking if anyone was interested. Well SURE I was!

      It was called Vanda teres, but is now known as Papilionanthe teres. It seems to just grow and grow. I've now shared it with several neighbors... Just in case

      If Only I could grow from seeds... something pollinated them!

      Beautiful blooms! Kind of reminds me of a mini Iris.
