One of the members of ActiveRain asked if I had any photographs of blue orchids. One of the places that regularly displays blue orchids is Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia. The photograph in this blog was taken in their conservatory.
You may not know that the natural color of these orchids is white. Blue food coloring is used to change the color. I do not have any personal experience in changing flower colors but it seems that you can change the color of white flowers by using food coloring.
If you know the secret formula that is best to use, please share your advice in the comments for this blog.
