Orchids take a wide array of maintenance
July 18, 2011
There is a diverse array of orchids, and many of them are delicate and need to be treated and handled in a certain way depending on the type of orchid it is, according to the Juneau Empire.
There are different variations across the globe that end up being in the thousand, and it is believed that these different types are because of the variety of pollinators that help each type of flower grow, the news source reports. The calypso or fairy slipper requires the pollination of a bumble bee, whereas the white bog orchid needs moths.
According to the San Lorenzo Patch, these orchids can be hard to maintain and care for. In some towns, including San Lorenzo, California, there will be an event in which an expert in growing and maintaining orchids advises a few brown thumbs. This way gardeners will be able to incorporate the beautiful orchid into their homes and spaces.
Those who are not adept at gardening may want to think about purchasing these blooms. They may even want to send orchid flowers to their friends and family members during these summer months.
