Today’s Daily Dose of Natural Beauty – courtesy Advertiser Zenith Holland Nursery – focuses on Orchids! – a delicate pink pleasure to indoor spaces that carries our thoughts away to more tropical climes.
Sometimes considered “hard to grow,” the truth is, once you determine the type and species of your orchid, and those specific needs, orchids are fairly low maintenance and can grow indefinitely. They represent good value for money with that in mind.
Based on the fact that there are so very many different types and species, you can find varieties that need high-light, as well as those needing low-light, lots of humidity and others who like less. Experienced orchid growers will share that, taking the time to learn what they need is often the hardest part of the job. Now that you may have a little time on your hands why not bone up on some orchid basics right here on Zenith Holland Nursery’s own blog. In their post you will also find quick links to more info on orchids from Better Homes and Gardens as well as the American Orchid Society.
