I bought this plant in homebase about 2 years ago ..it was just finished flowering and I only paid €2 for it at the time..It was an challenge to see could I get it to flower again ..I had it in the front porch and just ignored it apart from watering it now and again..it stayed green all the time and a few weeks ago I noticed a growth coming out the side of it and today it produced this flower ...I am so pleased with it ....can anybody here tell me what it is called

No idea I'm afraid, but isn't it great when something like that happens.

According to my Orchid book, it's a Miltassia 'Spider Star'. It's a little beauty. And it's in good hands. You're great with indoor plants too, Kate.

Such a dainty flower.

Thanks ladies ..yes Jacinta I think you are correct I just googled it and it sounds and looks right ...I am sure the Orchid experts would be horrified by the way I neglected this plant...Maybe it is a myth that they need special care ??
