What is an orchid?
An orchid is a plant with complex flowers. They are often quite ‘showy’ with a large specialised lip (known as a labellum) and a spur. Orchid plants and orchid flowers grow all across the world and are great in hot houses or controlled environments.
There are a huge variety of types of orchids.
Popular orchid varieties:
- Cooktown Orchid
- Thai Orchid
- Cymbidium Orchid
- Blue Orchid
- Phalaenopsis Orchid
These wonderful plants have unique evolutionary factors. They produce intense masses of pollen (which increases the chances of pollination) and can spread quite easily as a result. They use other plants as bases to support their growth.
The orchid represents love, luxury, beauty and strength – making them a great gift as well as a wonderful addition for your home.

If your orchid is indoors it needs between fifty to seventy perfect humidity to do well. Remember that these are predominantly tropical plants so they thrive in the heat.

- Good lighting
