Orchid blooms enjoyed indoors.

Orchid blooms enjoyed indoors.

This Rhinocattleya grows outdoors...but when it's in blooms we bring it in. Has a nice scent to it also. A pungent gardenia.
I forget if its Rainbow or Hawaiian ..something. Eh,doesn't matter!

Thank you. Orchids like this seem to take much more cold then I would have thought. I have to be careful in summer more since one hot day of too much direct sun burns a leaf that will still hang on like that for 2 years or more.

Thank you Klahanie. I bought the plant at a flea market,from a vender who sells orchids. He at first had just moth and some dendro's. I asked him about Cats and sure enough the next time he had them and I bought 2.

Yes, it doesn’t matter what it’s name is - it’s a beauty! Love the warm sunny colourings.

Very striking, love it. You are right about SOME orchids tolerating a bit of cold. My Cymbidiums take an occasional night temp down to3oC but live inside the cool conservatory.

Really lovely orchid and nice to have scent with it too.

It's still in full bloom. What's interesting? When I used to just leave them in bloom outside?..the flowers didn't seem to last long. Colder weather didn't make it last longer.
