Flower of the Holy Spirit : It Would Be A Miracle Indeed!
It would be a miracle if either of the two pictures above are the Flower of the Holy Spirit. The sad fact is that this is yet another divinely-inspired fake story.
The only factual thing about the whole post is that they are both orchids. Everything else was made up.
Fact #1 : Neither Are The Flower of the Holy Spirit
There is an orchid called The Flower of the Holy Spirit – Peristeria elata. Also known as the Holy Ghost orchid, dove orchid, or flor del Espiritu Santo in Spanish, this is what it looks like!
Fact #2 : The Orchid On The Left Is Green-Yellow Catasetum
The orchid that looks like praying saints? That’s Catasetum viridiflavum, commonly known as the Green-Yellow Catasetum.
We hate to burst your divine bubble again, but generally their “arms” do not fold inwards. It’s hard to find photos that show these “saints” praying…
Fact #3 : The Orchid On The Right Is White Egret Flower
The orchid that looks like a flying dove is Pecteilis radiata. It is commonly known as the White Egret Flower, the fringed orchid or sagisō. Incidentally, this is the official flower of the Setagaya ward of Tokyo.
Fact #4 : They Do Not Bloom During Pentecost
As far as we can tell, orchids do not observe the Pentecost – which is generally around mid May to mid June.
- Catasetum viridiflavum (the “praying saints”) blooms sometime between end June to end September.
- Pecteilis radiata (the “flying dove”) blooms sometime between early December and February.
It doesn’t look like either of the orchids in the picture actually bloom during Pentecost…
Fact #5 : It Would Be A True Miracle If It Happens
It would be a textbook case of a true miracle if Catasetum viridiflavum blooms into Pecteilis radiata during the Pentecost.
We will be sure to update you if this miracle ever happens. But for now, this is just divine inspiration?
