Here is the answer to yesterday's orchid post. These Blue Mystique Orchids are not nature's color, they are a fraud. But they are not dyed or painted either! The Sliver Vase Company has developed a special technique to turn these white Phalaenopsis orchids blue. The process took many years to develop. They inject a medium at the base of the flower spike which is carried all the way up the stem. As it re-blooms, the orchid will gradually turn white again. Of course, many serious orchid breeders do not like this fooling Mother Nature and will not let it enter shows. What do YOU think? Would you enjoy it just as much knowing it is partly man made?
“Then God planted a garden in Eden, in the east. He put the Man he had just made in it. God made all kinds of trees grow from the ground, trees beautiful to look at and good to eat. The Tree-of-Life was in the middle of the garden, also the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil.”
