Tiny Orchid Flowers
A lovely selection of tiny orchids are currently blooming in Plantgasm Gardens (aka my house). The flowers below are each smaller than a US dime.
On the left is Ludisia discolor, a “Jewel Orchid,” grown more to enjoy the leaves than the blooms, which you can’t see in this photo because the flower stalk grew so tall, but trust me they’re pretty.
On the right is Dendrobium kingianum which, in addition to being a micro-beauty, also has a sweet smell.
The larger my orchid collection grows, the more I appreciate the small ones.
