Unusual blue orchids

A lot of plants are growing around my house and indoors but I have never grown an orchid. I’ve been to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, PA,  and saw the huge orchid collection there, I’ve been to traditional Spring Hill Orchid Show and several others – but never in my life have I seen orchid blooms in such an unusual blue color (see photos below).

Walking around the local nursery this morning, looking for everything but orchids, I spotted these intensely blue flowers from the corner of my eye – and was instantly drawn to them. I took several pictures  – just to make sure I was not dreaming… 😉

Wouldn’t you say these are the most unusual blue orchids you’ve ever seen?

Hi Daria!
Sorry to say but this is a normal white orchid which has been watered with special blue flower dye. The next time this orchid plant will flower at your home (if you buy it) you’ll get “normal” plain white flowers.

    LOL… Thank you, Katya, for this explanation. I was wondering about that possibility and thought that if I make a post, someone might have one.
