66: Golden Slipper Orchid

Posted by wonko on March 7, 2011 in flower |

I have grown these, but the blooms of the cultivars I am familiar with are really tiny yellow leopard spotted flowers – I misjudged the scale (seems a full square from an A4 makes quite a sizeable bloom)

A delicate, spidery flower, with a well developed nectary and some interesting folds – if I was to fold it again I have learned what does what so I think the second+ fold would be much better

You too can have a go – it is not that difficult: goldenslipperorchid

    How did you do step #8? It seems whenever I pull out all the points I lose all of my folds. If have any tips or detailed pictures of this step that would help so much.

    The flower itself looks great, thanks for sharing! 😀

      step 8 is really a spread open – you need more fingers than occur on a normal hand – the aim is to keep the point bent over from step 7 as you gently open up the flaps underneath – it is not a complete unfold, more of a reveal
