🌼🌸 FLOWER OF THE DAY ~ Tree Spider Orchid (Dendrobium tetragonum)

Such a wonderful Flower to have around when you are working through challenges and also tasks towards goals.

Tree spider orchid webcard

As a Flower Oracle, Tree Spider Orchid will be indicating that you are on the right path, that you can surmount any difficulties that you are facing and it will be reminding you to have faith in yourself.

This flower will be warning you to hold back a little for yourself and not share too much with too many.

Dendrobium tetragonum is an epiphyte (a plant that grows on another) and is a native to Australian Queensland and New South Wales coastline. This fascinating plant with spider-like flowers, is very unique as it has a square steam, a rarity in the plant kingdom. They also have a very fresh minty fragrance that I feel embodies the energies of resolve and of capability.
My Australian friends, if you see one in the wild, they are protected so leave them be and if you do obtain some from a licensed source, grow them by tying lightly to a tree or piece of bark (paperbark is probably best) and keep damp.
They will probably not survive frost and need to be watered regularly throughs summer. If you are wanting to obtain and grow these amazing flowers, my advice is to go and find specialist orchid resources and groups and have a chat.

🌹FLOWER OF THE DAY ~ Yellow Rose (Rosa)


All roses offer protection and love.

Roses in yellow hues are the ones to invite into your life if you are wanting to improve friendships; welcome back energies, people and situations into your life; are looking at a new beginning and are very good to give to someone if you are wanting to ask for a second chance or would like to show that you are facing in love with them!
As A Flower Oracle, Yellow Roses will indicate that new friendships are about to be formed and that something positive from your past is about to return. They will warn of melancholy too and be careful to not over romanticise a situation.

Yellow Rose Webcard
It would take pages to share Rose botanical history with you as they have been on earth for so long. Fossil evidence dating them at least 60 million years ago. In 500BC Chinese philosopher Confucius spoke of them in the Imperial Gardens. The Ancient Romans revered them and flavoured drinks and foods; perfumed themselves with their divine scent and used them in ceremonies, rituals and traditions.

Roses need lots of sunlight, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter and a sheltered position to ensure the best possible conditions for blossoms. Mulch and feed well. Follow guidelines given for your rose type for regular pruning advice and when transplanting but all roses need to be pruned back fairly hard (branches to no more than about 10 to 5cm). This will stimulate the roots.

🌼🍄FLOWER OF THE DAY 🌹🌻 Sweet Peas (Lathyrus odoratus)



Sweet pea webcard
They connect strongly to the Faery Realm and they are also indicators of strong female power and they tell of an opportunity to settle down if you have had issues with finding what you would think of as 'home' or people you feel are family, true friends or those you would like to work with.
Sweet Peas are all about finding your true place in the world. When Sweet Pea blossoms in a place, we can feel at home. If someone gives you Sweet Peas, it means they think of you as family. As a Flower Oracle they will indicate harmony, good luck, protection and gratitude but they will also indicate that you may need to take responsibility for something you have done (make things right) or that more is expected of you.
Sweet Pea are summer blooming native of the Mediterranean and are thought to have originated in Sicily. Sow in Autumn (Fall) after soaking in warm water overnight. You will need to provide a trellis or support of some sort for them to grow on as they are a climber.
There is a lovely tradition in Australia of planting our Sweet Peas on St Patricks Day in temperate to warmer areas. In cooler climates, you may need to wait until Spring.

🌻FLOWER OF THE DAY ~ Rafflesia (Rafflesia arnoldii)

Those seeking progression, answers and an improvement in situations will benefit with connecting with Rafflesia. You probably do not have access to the largest flower in the world and wouldn't want to live with its rotting flesh 'perfume', but you can certainly connect with the powerful energy of this flower through images, artworks, flower essences and visual meditations.


Rafflesia Flower webcards

As a Flower Oracle, Rafflesia indicates a return to a state that is better for you. This includes physical health, mental stability and emotional peace. Learning opportunities and greater, deeper understandings are possible at present. Make sure that you are fully aware of the motivation of others and there is a chance you could become ungrounded while exploring a future project or path.

Rafflesia is not at all a 'common' garden flower but rather a somewhat rare parasitic plant found in the rainforests of Malaysia, Southern Philippines, Borneo, Sumatra, Java and Thailand. The Flower has been reported to growing up to 1m in diameter and weighing up to 11kgs.
