Orchids look so extraordinary and exotic with their intense coloring and spectacular flowers that most people assume they are difficult to grow. But nothing could be farther from the truth. They are, in fact, straightforward in their needs and, in the right conditions, extremely robust, flowering year after year for many weeks at a time - sometimes outliving their owner! Introducing Orchids is prefect for plant lovers who are fascinated by orchids but haven't dared to grow them.
