The Black orchid in Full Bloom! Trichoglottis philippinensis var. brachiata






Trichoglottis philippinensis var. brachiata or Black orchid has reached its full bloom. It is a very beautiful dark purple/maroon color with a lavender/pink fuzzy lip. Thanks to TS Fay I lost 7 blooms from bud blast having to drag all the chids inside for a few days. Here are some pictures.
