Frog Friday! Ambrosia
With only a few hours of Friday left, it feels like I'm filing my report right against the deadline. This week, San Francisco somehow managed to crawl onto the mounted Ludisia discolor for a nice view of the vivarium and her fellow frogs. This is my second Ludisia from Michel Orchid Nursery and it's extra special. It's the clone 'Ambrosia' JC/AOS and the flowers have an incredible cinnamon smell. (You can buy your own here). I smelled 'Ambrosia' in bloom at the Kansas City Orchid Show and immediately knew I had to have it. I'm not sure if it's blooming size, but at least San Francisco is enjoying it in the meantime. The plant looks a little stressed and it might take a few more weeks to adjust to its new location, but the other Ludisia is the only orchid that hasn't died in vivarium so I'm going to stay the course for now. Happy Friday!
