Ghost Orchid Time-Lapse

Enjoy these two short, time-lapse videos featuring the blooms of rare Ghost Orchids. It’s easy to see why these flowers inspire so much fascination and intrigue.  In the first video, a small flower spike emerges from the roots of this bizarre, leafless orchid species. The growing spike unfurls a perfect Ghost Orchid flower, revealed in full profile. The second video shows a different flower unfurl over 2½ days. Both of these clips are courtesy of Jay Staton Photography.
