Our Champion Orchid, the Oncidium sphacelatum, locally known as Shower of Gold, or Dancing Ladies, surprised us 2 years ago by having 11,310 flowers open at the same time. Click here to see what it looked like last year, and make sure to also stop by Ella’s blog to see other orchids in bloom.
As we near its bloom time again, probably in March, just like every year, we would like you to guess how many flowers do you think will open at the same time? Leave your answer in a comment – let’s see whose guess is the closest!
