These buds are developing beautifully. This is a grocery store NOID #PhalaenopsisOrchid , so no tag, but looks to me like it might be phal “Little Black Pearl.” #NewGrowth #HappyPlants #OrchidLovers #FloweringPlants #Phalaenopsis

The little dots you see on the stem are “happy sap” droplets! It’s a sugary sap they sometimes excrete, perhaps to attract pollinators.
this is so cool
How beautiful!
That’s awesome! & lucky! I never find cool orchids in my supermarkets 😭
@melaza do you have a Trader Joe’s near you? I work near one and they often get great orchids. More than just phals too. This one is from there.
@Nataleaf I do actually, but still they never have anything really interesting. I’m in NYC & I’ve noticed people down south are always finding exotic or rare phals in their supermarkets & Home Depot’s 🥲
When this blooms you must post an update!!
💃 Doing a happy dance!
