A wide range of rare and exotic orchids are available for sale from specialist orchid nurseries and suppliers in the UK. Many growers include a range of hardy orchids for cool climates as well as the unusual exotic and tropical orchids that require special care and growing conditions.
Orchids are one of the most popular flowering plants in the world. We provide information on orchid care, how to grow orchids, different orchid species and where to buy Orchids and Orchid Accessories form online mail order suppliers.
Orchids can provide a beautiful display if kept inside the house when in flower, but how do we care for them?
Many suppliers will supply comprehensive growing notes specially written for specific species and cultivars. We provide a general guide.
- Cymbidium Orchids and Zygopetalum Orchids need to be given a thorough watering every two weeks depending on how warm your greenhouse or house is kept. The flower spikes on cymbidiums may be cut once they have opened and will keep well in a vase.
- Paphiopedilum Orchids or 'Slipper Orchids' require humidity, try a saucer of water filled with small stones placed beneath the pot. Paphiopedilum Orchids prefer to be kept out of direct sunlight.
- Masdevallia Orchids need humidity as well, water thoroughly each week and use the pebbles to keep some humidity.
