How to Care for your Orchids
Have you ever been given a beautiful arrangement with orchids, a corsage or even a flowering orchid plant?
One of the best things you can do for an orchid flower is to keep it moist ... but not the roots! Orchid roots need fresh air...
However if you have been lucky enough to be in possesion of an exquisite flowering orchid, this means a little ongoing love is required to keep it flowering every year. Firstly, don't over water. Orchids can survive in trees without pots so they aren't that fussy when it comes to watering. Secondly, keep away from cold draughts, frosts or direct sunlight and airconditioners. What is a perfect environment for these tropical beauties? A warm and humid area will see your orchids last the test of time and flower every year. Of course, there is more to it such as repotting, getting rid of spikes after flowers are spent, fertilising not to mention the variety of orchids on the market now, but wiki has a little more information here http://www.wikihow.com/Care-for-Orchids
Remember if it's a corsage, a flower arrangement or even a bouquet or buttonhole .. please keep your flowers moist - a light mist throughout particularly dry hot days will see your flowers last that little bit longer.
