My newly acquired orchid plant flowered. No flower buds when I got it but a few days ago I noticed one flower spike which flowered this morning. Another three spikes are coming out and will probably flower soon. I hope I can get a photo with all the flowers. Name of orchid is Trias picta. Endemic to Thailand and Myanmar. The flower is about 2cm across and is light green with maroon spots. On the second photo, the flower is by the last bulb on the left. It is suppose to be easy to care for and I guess it is . . . . . since it has not died on me yet. I spray water once a day and gave it a very dilute liquid fertiliser spray about 3 weeks ago.
