Orchids, Orchids Everywhere

Although we are called The Orchid Site, we are about much more than just orchids. We deal with all kinds of issues pertinent to growing and displaying flowers. Yet, there is something special about orchids: From their unique look and incredible fragrance, to the way they need just the right environment to thrive. They are certainly the spoiled princesses of the flower world.

It is important to know that orchids are the largest family of flowering plants on the planet. There are more than 30,000 different species, and more than ten times that number of hybrid types of plants. They live everywhere, from the cold arctic to the hot jungles, for a good reason. Their most amazing characteristic is their adaptability.

For people interested in growing orchids, their extreme diversity is good news. With so many types of orchids to choose from, it is not hard to find a type perfectly suited to the conditions you can provide, whether it be a windowsill in your kitchen, or a greenhouse in your garden.

 

Still, you must be careful when choosing your orchid. There are many types that are almost impossible to even keep alive, let alone bring to flower. That said, when you pick your orchid, make sure your specific conditions are suitable for maximal success. Buy the most mature plant that you can; young plants are much harder to take care of. And if you can, buy the plant while it is blooming, so you know in advance what you are getting. Have fun on this awesome adventure called growing orchids!
