Journal February 25, 2018 - Poltinara Orchid Blooming.

Finally, I had an opportunity to make a time-lapse of an orchid blooming.  This is a learning process and the video is far from perfect.  

The frames were taken at five minute intervals and next time I will try ten minute intervals. Also,  I will place the setup in a grow tent to control auxiliary lighing in the basement from affecting the video lighting.

 All of the above being said, it was an enjoyable project.

This is what the orchid looks like up close, fully opened.

Potinara Love Love 'Yellow Bird', a medium/smaller sized cattleya. I waited a year for this one to bloom, the flowers will last about three weeks and then it is back to waiting.
