You never ask a lady’s age, so no one can really say how old these beauties in the world’s second-largest family of plants are. What we do know is that many of the orchid’s fabulous colours and shapes originate from the tropical rainforest. The various species grow as epiphytes in the trees, on branches or twigs with their roots in the air. The orchids that can now be bought in your shop as cut flowers have been developed from these natural species.
There’s and orchid to suit every style, so this beauty deserves the title for the Perfect Flower. There are more than 25,000 species in the wild, and the flower comes in impressive colours: from powder pastels to candy pink or Zen white. There are even tiger prints, cow spots and ones with stripes.
Use the butterfly-like Phalaenopsis, the vampy Vanda and the slender Cymbidium, they’re all just as beautiful as their names suggests. Many species also come in various sizes ranging from mini flowers to gigantic full blooms.
These care tips will enable the flowers to be enjoyed for even longer:
