Phalaenopsis orchid.

Last week our family got bigger with the addition of "Henry". Phalaenopsis Orchid, also called a moth orchid is probably the most common flower thanks to its supposedly easy care. I'm a total beginner as far as home plants, so shall see. Always planning to adopt more within upcoming weeks.

omg! :) orchids have been on my mind lately! my husband and i had been shopping for one, hoping for an intense purple hue, or even white, for my workspace. unfortunately, we haven't found one yet that isn't dyed some fake color. i wish i could go back in time, to when i was in Grenada; orchids grow wild there, in the hills. i should have dug up a few! (they're a different variety than your "Henry".)

"Henry" is a beautiful specimen. lovely photos.

Beautiful! I have a "Henry" myself although I think her name should be "Princess" because she's a little fickle to say the least.....sometimes blooming like crazy, sometimes all sad and droopy.

I love orchids, I need to get a new one. I killed my last one because it was in the sun too much :(

my favorite flower – also tattooed on my scalp – is truly an easy companion. sensual and pure i think the white ones are just exquisite.

I've been fascinated by orchids ever since I read The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean. They are fleshy and yet delicate.

I just had a spring clean yesterday and everything is looking so bare, I was trying to think of what to put on my bedside table and I think an Orchid would be perfect!
