Pink Rock Orchid


From the Dendrobium family, which I think were recently re-classified as Thelychiton...perhaps just to keep us all a little confused. But no matter which latin you use, the common name for this one is Pink Rock Orchid.



Its another crazy day here behind the scenes, I hope your day will be more leisurely - have a good one!

Thanks Ces! I wonder if you can get or mix this pink colour with paints - glass for lampworking in this colour is rare as hens teeth!
(Hmmm, I must want to try to torch today - I keep talking about glass.....) ;)
