Oma’s Orchid

Moth Orchid

In 2008 we purchased a Moth Orchid for my grandmother’s 92nd birthday. She loved this orchid which bloomed for her twice; once upon brining it home and again in 2009 shortly before her death on July 23rd of that year.

We brought the orchid home and have cared for it ever since. Not only does it continue to bloom for us, but every season it gives us more flowers. Last year we counted 24 beautiful flowers on a single stem. This year, for some reason, the orchid has shot up two stems and it looks like we may get 15 flowers this time.

This blooming orchid is probably the best memento we have of my Grandmother because it’s such a beautiful plant and it brings a smile to our faces every time it blooms.
