Just wanted to share what is currently blooming in our yard. This beautiful purple cattaleya orchid plant that I planted years ago on a native Ohia tree, has 9 perfect flowers blossoms on it! It is right outside of our living room window so we can enjoy looking at these gorgeous blooms every day. Each flower measures about 4 to 5 inches across.
For more photos of our different orchids grown on trees, and directions on how you can grow it too even if you don't live in Hawaii, see our past post How to Grow Orchids on Trees in Hawaii.
