I bought a butterfly orchid about three weeks ago. I spent 40 RMB, or about six US dollars. I am not sure if they are called butterfly orchids in English, but the person who sold them to me said they were 蝴蝶兰. When the new orchid was first brought home, two flowers were open, one of which since fell off. It seems to be one of the most common orchids on the market, but it is in flower and looks nice.
