Snake Plant flowers



I have had Snake Plants off and on all of my life. I bought this one to help clean the air in my house. They are the number one plant for air purification! I was stunned one day to notice a little spike. A flower spike!! I didn’t know they flowered!! A couple days ago the flowers opened. Aren’t they pretty. What you can’t see in the photos is that they open fully in the evening and then emit a very strong sweet smell in the air.

A lovely new Phalaenopsis Orchid





I can’t believe the root growth on this orchid. It also has what looks like a new flower spike forming (it already has two) and either a new flower branch or Keiki forming on the flower stalk. It is a spectacularly vigorous and beautiful plant.
