Monster Orchids

I recently returned from an eight-day trip. Upon my return this is what was lurking in the bedroom. It was shocking because the entire spray was all in bud form when I left town and now these blooms were about 50% larger than they were the last time the plant was in flower.

All nine orchids, 10 inches high by 4 inches wide, were open and reaching out to explore the space around them.

Stunning, but a little scary!
