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 is 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. 

Tips for Orchid Care

Orchids need a lot of water BUT they need to be left alone to dry out a little between waterings. You can check by poking your finger into the soil. If your finger is dry, it needs to be watered. Indoor orchids need humidity to be between fifty and seventy to do well. Remember that these are predominantly tropical plants so they thrive in the heat. 

Looking after orchids – they need:

  • Good lighting
  • Good watering
  • Warm temperatures
  • Removal of dead blooms
  • To NOT be potted into soil – check with your orchid nurseries Brisbane stockist for appropriate repotting orchids techniques
