Wonderful and unusual flower. You crochet version is as beautiful as the original one (but much more durable :-DDD) Here you can buy orchid only in a shop as they do not grow in nature (much too cold) but my mother loves them and has several at home.

Hello, if these are more durable. In my country (Venezuela) there are approximately 1600 species of orchids, occupying the fifth place.

That is a really realistic looking flower I must say it is quite impressive. I appreciate how you explained every step in detail.

Greetings, thanks for your comment. If it is quite realistic, although I hope to be improving, because I want them as similar to natural orchids.
