Colour Your World: Midnight Blue

Blue Orchid

I had to have it. It cost more than the “normal” orchids but I had never seen a blue orchid before, and so I bought one. Usually orchids live for a couple of months, but this one only survived a month. I kept it afterwards, but it eventually decided to give up. So much for blue orchids, you cannot trust them.

  1. Aren’t the orchids treated in some fashion to create this blue?
    Or maybe I just made this up!
    It does look nice though
    My wife is a big fan, and we have a number of varieties around the property, inside and out.

    • I don’t know how they do it, and you do not often see them in this colour, but I do not think it is a natural colour for an orchid. I also buy an orchid now and again, but in Switzerland we keep them indoors and only during the summer in pots outside. I like them because they maintain the flowers for so long.
