Indoor Plant of the Month – Orchids
Elegant, architectural and brightly coloured, Orchids are so diverse and one of our most popular indoor plants.
Situated in the right spot Orchids are low maintenance and can bring beauty, interest and fragrance to your home.
Although generally thought of as a tropical plant, Orchids grow on every continent, part of the Orchidacea family, the largest family of flowering plants, there are more than 25,000 documented Orchid species throughout the world.
Orchids are one of the oldest flowers in existence. Since varieties of Orchids are found all over the world, it’s accepted that orchids were in existence prior to the separation of the continents and according to the fossil evidences, Orchids existed on the planet around 100 million years ago.
Despite its age the Orchid is still very fashionable and looks fantastic against the fresh modern interior of contemporary homes as well as more traditional decors. A flower associated with perfection, love, beauty and luxury, Orchids are a popular plant choice for gifting and often used in cut flower in bouquets.
The lifespan of an orchid depends on the species but some species can survive up to 100 years! Some Orchid flowers bloom for mere hours, while others last up to half a year – we think you’ll agree they are much better value than a bunch of flowers!
