There is an orchid that exists, and it looks like an owl face staring at you from the middle of the flower. It’s the COOLEST thing!
I love flowers that resemble animals. It’s nature’s cool way of adapting each plant, making it perfectly designed for pollination, predators, and being just plain pretty.
This PARTICULAR orchid is called a Miltoniopsis Lila Fearneyhough, and once it blooms, it has flower petals that share a striking resemblance to a beautiful pink, red, and burgundy owl.
It is pretty dang rare. In fact, if you do a Google search for “Owl Orchid,” you will find a bunch of paintings, but you will be hard pressed to find the actual orchid, itself.
No worries, my friend. We found one, FINALLY, on Etsy. RitterOrchids is selling a flowering sized plant, and it will have at least TWO spikey blooms.
Once the Owl Orchid blooms, it will last about 6 weeks. It is also a very fragrant flower — which are my FAVORITE kind!
You can expect this beauty to bloom in the spring and fall, and make sure you keep it OUT of direct sunlight — kinda like me. Ha!
Ritterorchids, on Etsy, has these LIVE plants for $45, and you can get up to 2. They go pretty fast, so if you want one, go get it NOW.
