Default Butterfly world should be called orchid world. Wow!!!

I had the fun of going to Butterfly World with my family last week and I was blown away and delighted. The place is in a local park and about 30 years old and they have many orchids that have been there since they opened. Holy bleeping duck sauce!!! I am going back, a lot, I need to see some of these plants bloom.

I am uploading the shots now but will add a bunch of pic tomorrow. There was one orchid that really had me confused bc it looked like a MASSIVE cym fully epiphyte in full sun.

If anyone is in the Broward County area. Make this a place you visit.


They also have a cool garden center where they sell a lot of their butterfly plants. I got a wisteria seedling and a nice passiflora vine but could have gone crazy as they have some really sweet plants

Great!

The blue flower on a spike is Stachytarpheta, porterweed. It is widespread in the American tropics. It is being hybridized for more colors.

Maybe Cymbidium finlaysonianum? The lip doesn't entirely match, though.

Don't recognize the Cym... suspect that it is a hybrid, in the group that includes finlaysonianum, aloifolium (simulans), bicolor, maybe some suave in the mix. Those hard-leaved tropical Cyms can get IMMENSE ... like that one. The relatively large flowers with lip broader than the species that I mentioned makes me strongly suspect hybrid.

And great butterfly pix!
