There are over 25,000 species of orchids.
The genus Phalaenopsis, is probably the
easiest to grow since it does'nt require many of the special conditions such as humidity and temperature exposure that others require. They will rebloom with ease if you follow some simple guidelines.
Bright light is best, they even like some direct sun light. Never water if it feels moist, let it dry out first. Water thoroughly in bright light,much less in low light. Fertilize every other watering at half strength. Never let it sit in water. You may want to take it out of the decorative pot when you water it so that it drains well. You should'nt need to water again for 1-3 weeks. They can stay dry for long periods of time in low light. Excessive moisture can kill the flowers.

We offer custom orchid and bromeliad arrangements as well as other flowering plants. Please contact us for details and to learn about our blooming plant programs.
The air inside sealed , energy-efficient buildings is often 10 times more polluted than the air outside due to toxic emissions from a variety of building constituents.
The work of NASA scientist Dr. B.C. Wolverton and others have indicated that interior plants can reduce the airborne molds and toxins responsible for sick-building illnesses in sealed office environments by as much as 50 percent.
