Can you guess what this plant is?

Ok, I’ll give you a hint – I watered my houseplants today, which is when I took this photo.

Hmm, I reckon that half of you know instantly what this houseplant is, and the other half are just staring at the photo wondering which way up it should be.

Maybe this photo makes it a bit clearer – it’s an orchid, or to give its full name, it’s a Moth Orchid (Phalaenopsis). The RHS gives them a “moderately easy” rating for difficulty of growing, but so far I’ve never achieved keeping an orchid alive after it’s flowered. Maybe I’ll have better luck with this one?
