Orchid

A friend gave me this orchid several years ago and it has never failed to flower each spring since. It must be a tough one since it gets no special care but still puts on a good show! I have no idea what variety it is - any ideas out there?

Whatever variety it is, it's obviously very durable and great to look at!

Having no proverbial green thumb, I haven't the slightest idea!

Sorry can't help with the name. It certainly puts on a good show of flowers.

An orchid! I don't know how you keep it alive. In Florida they are cheap, so I buy one in the winter and toss it out when I go north.

You must be a natural "green thumb." I'd guess it is fun to look forward to such a nice floral delight every spring!

So lovely but how they make me sneeze.

This orchid is definitely a Redpat Orchid, whatever its origin.
Gorgeous plant, gorgeous photo.

You must be doing something right to get it to bloom on a regular basis. It is a stunner.

I love houseplants that thrive on neglect. This one is especially pretty.

Beautiful orchid, I'm sure you're good with plants, I didn't know they could stand the Canadian winter.

I've never seen this variety around here, my father used to cultivate orchids when we lived in house with a big yard. :)
