Orchids and Hippieastrum
The riot of color is rather nice during this cold season. BTW in addition to the regular heat source, there was a large space heater blowing hot air into the tropical area.
The sun came out and backlit the Amaryllis (Hippieastrum) beautifully.
The plant in the background is labelled Amorphophallus and from the description, it sounds like A. titanum. Which translates misshapen giant phallus. Isn't botanical Latin fun?
And speaking of amorphallus, this Hippieastrum seems to have two bloom stalks that fused together.
You may have noticed white paper stars in some of the pictures. These are part of Tacoma's "Stars 4 Peace." The instructions are 2 complicated for 1 of my advanced years to follow but the idea is nice. Digits instead of words, Tag, pound sign, capitalized Social Media, I'm confused. (I don't like to complain but don't want to risk losing my curmudgeon credential.)
Wishing you all the blessing of peace today and always.
