Orchids are a very pretty and popular plant due to the striking nature of their flowers. Orchids make lovely container plants and orchids also thrive in warmer climates. There are hundreds of species of orchids and we have planting and gardening advice on many of the most popular varieties of orchids including Goat’s Beard, Bamboo Orchid, Milkweed and many more orchids. Orchids have a reputation for being difficult to grow when in fact many varieties make excellent house plants. With proper culture an orchid can be in bloom for months each year and can live indefinitely. Orchids require special fertilizer designed for orchids to grow really well.
