Wild Orchids

While poking around the garden in Laguna the other day I happened across this little orchid bloom poking out of a planter that had become a refuge for some abandoned potted plants when the lower deck was cleaned out last year. It is a zygopetalum and one of the most fragrant of orchids. It is easy to grow as proven here by existing and blooming on neglect!

What a gorgeous orchid Sheila ..
I didn't have luck with the two orchids I bought last year .. maybe I paid too much attention to them ? LOL

How lucky! I've already killed off my cymbidium orchids, I'm scared to ruin my karma further by trying any more!
