Orchid Exhibit

I recently visited Tower Hill Botanic Gardens where they had a beautiful orchid exhibit. The visit inspired me to add orchids to my indoor plant collection.

Orchid Centerpieces

You can order live, blooming orchids delivered to your home; ready to become a spectacular orchid centerpiece.

Grouping them together for a stunning display will work for your party. Remember to return the pots back to the sunshine after you’re done celebrating.

Caring For Orchids

  • Most orchids require water once a week. Avoid over watering as this can cause the roots to rot
  • Orchids like a bright east or west facing window
  • Weekly feeding with a high quality Orchid Food will keep your orchids blooming for months.

“The Orchid Whisperer” by Bruce Rogers. What a great title for a book, right? When your read Rogers’ book, you will learn all pro tips about blooming, potting, and everything you need to care for your orchids. It’s a great resource for the orchid neophyte.

Orchids At Home

A line of mixed orchids colorfully adorning your window sill will bring you joy all year long.

Of course, not everyone has a green thumb, you can still get the same great Orchid Centerpiece with a silk orchid – no muss – no fuss.

Next time you are at a botanical garden, visit the orchid exhibit. You will be surprised by these tropical beauties and how easy it is to grow orchids at home.

    I admittedly do not have a green thumb. A friend of mine grows Orchids and tried to convince me, as she was gifting me one, that I could do this. Alas, I could not. But admire them – they are gorgeous. The pictures are beautiful and the steps for caring – wish I had them a year ago! Thanks for your post.
