Chinese farmer Hao Xianzhang has perfected the process of growing pears inside Buddha shaped plastic molds. They are sold in the village of Hexia, China and are thought to bring good luck. i just find it cool that they are shaping pears into things.
Just bought a Miltoniopsis Rubenesque which looks very similar to this guy's. It's a scented orchid with a perfume that builds with sun exposure over the course of the day. Once shade falls, the perfume stops until the next day.
