Gardening is hard enough, but orchids require something special. A lot of patience and knowledge and experience, to begin with. But the payoff is huge - look at this orchid! Orchids in the home are like small, delicate pieces of living sculpture. The variety of orchids is astounding and, for many reasons, the orchid brings out the obsessive side of people. In designing and decorating your home, the object is to create a place of beauty and repose, a refuge from the world and a place of peace for you and your friends and family. Orchids will help you along in this work. For more information about orchids, and to purchase orchids, visit Calyx & Corolla or Piping Rock Orchids.
