No, you aren’t imagining things—those are little faces on each flower of a Stanhopea wardii, an orchid from Mexico. Hang one of these from a hook and make all your guests feel like they’re surrounded by beady little eyes.

To grow: These can take a light frost if they’re protected, but should be moved indoors in a hard freeze. They don’t like to be dried out or exposed to hot sun. An atrium or porch is ideal.
