Unique Orchid Pattern Looks Like The Wise Face Of An Owl

The other day I wrote about a unique flower that closely resembles a parrot and I was truly blown away at its sheer beauty.

But now I've stumbled upon yet another gem. This time, it's one of my absolutely favorite flowers — an orchid — that looks just a wise owl. Say what? Yes, indeed and you won't believe your eyes. Wow, really.

This very rare orchid variety is called Miltoniopsis Lila Fearneyhough.

And you'd be hard-pressed to find one for sale. At one point, you could buy it on Etsy through a seller called RitterOrchids but at this time they're sold out.

But keep this name in mind in case they do get more in stock.

I'm planning on keeping my eye on it because I'm absolutely obsessed with orchids, even though I've already killed a few of them. I know, tragic.

What makes this orchid variety stand out is that once it blooms, its flower petals have a striking resemblance to a gorgeous pink, red, and burgundy owl.

Didn't I tell you? This orchid is truly spectacular. I want it, too.

If you can get your hands on one, get ready for six weeks of pretty flowers as that's how long this variety typically blooms for.

I say it's totally worth it to see its flowers in person for sure.

And get a load of this cool fact: This type of orchid has a fragrant aroma as well.

That is a rare feat for an orchid in itself. Not many orchids have any scent at all. Pretty special, huh?

This orchid can bloom in the spring and fall but make sure you keep it away from direct sunlight.

Orchids also prefer warmer indoor temperatures between 55 to 60 Farenheit at night and 80 to 85 Farenheit during the day.

One thing you gotta remember about taking care of orchids is that you shouldn't over water them.

This has usually been my problem. All my orchids died of root rot which is caused by overwatering. It was so sad to see.

The good news is that there is no need to fertilize your orchids when you first get them. Just enjoy the flowers!

Once they bloom and when you want them to bloom again, you can then fertilize them monthly. Yipee!

I'm always amazed by what nature brings to us.
