This orchid, with the common name of "green bird" and the scientific name of Brassavola x Cattleya hybrid...romanced me into saving electricity.
I always knew I should be turning lights off to conserve electricity. So I would guiltily push and prod myself to remember to do it.
Then this gorgeous Green Bird showed up in my life.
There is a secret (well not really a secret to orchid nerds) about this orchid. It is incredibly fragrant. BUT...here's the magic: it's only fragrant at night...and it must be dim/dark to trigger the fragrance.
So now I'm uber excited to turn lights off, because nature, through this little tough-as-nails orchid, delighted my senses. A sweet reward.
I've never turned off lights the same way again. Nature nurtures goodness in you. I love it.
