I heard that a certain tumblr user is making a video game about orchid breeding. As someone who does this for a living I would love to show some pictures from my work.

A dracula lotax ("clownish little dragon") mounted on tree fern.

A Paphiopedilum Maudiae x Curtisii "Napa Valley", this one is my favourite. It also has mottled leaves due to uneven distribution of chlorophyll.

A Phalaenopsis Pure moon "Green Pixie"
