I used to think I couldn’t grow them in my home, but I have discovered that with a little work and patience it’s really not that hard. These are incredible plants. Orchidae is the most diverse and complex plant family on earth, with so many different species and varieties it’s astounding. People have also played a major role in orchid ecology, both as a destructive force and a constructive one through creating manifold new hybrids and growing orchids just about everywhere people live.
This blog is intended to share some of the expertise and passion I’ve gained in growing orchids over the past year. It is really intended as an informational site for beginning and intermediate orchid growers, who grow orchids in the home. As I have gained more knowledge about the basics of orchid growing I have found myself wishing that some of this information was more accessible. Most of all, I simply want to share my excitement with others who are just getting started with these amazing and complex plants.
