Like I said yesterday, I bought four new orchids at the Orchid Fest yesterday. They're currently all situated near my southern window, so we'll see how they do right there.Here's the Phaelonopsis I bought. I have one that bloomed purple so I picked a yellow one.

Today I went to the second annual Orchid Fest at Reiman Gardens here at Iowa State. I'm a novice orchid grower, previously having only one Phaelonopsis. I bought four more orchids today, which I'll showcase in a another post. But here are a bunch of photos I took of the beautiful orchid specimens in the conservatory! Included is one bromeliad that was flowering blue and pink and looked really cool. Enjoy these pictures! I definitely enjoyed walking through this exhibit, especially in the middle of winter.There are a variety of orchids in here, from Phaelonopsis to Dendrobium.
