Moth orchid

Phalaenopsis sp.
ORCHIDACEAE, the Orchid family

Today I noticed the orchid in our studio is sprouting a bud shoot! It must mean it likes the very cool night temperatures. Through the summer I fed it occasionally with dilute Dr. Earth Liquid Solution, an organic fertilizer. Hopefully conditions will stay stable and hospitable enough for it to keep growing the shoot.
