Four days after its first bloom on June 23 (as shown in the photograph), this ghost orchid is barely visible to the naked eye at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Typically there are one or two blooms per plant, but there can be as many as 10. Flowers are white and usually 4-1/2 to 5 inches in size. Courtney Potter/Staff.
The Ghost Orchid had it's first bloom on June 23rd 2008 at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Last year the rare orchid brought visitors from all over the world when it became known that the flower existed at the sanctuary.
