Orchid flowers collectively form a family called Orchidaceae, which is the biggest family of plants worldwide. They grow mainly in the tropical regions but some species are also are found in the Alps and other cold regions, actually there are only three regions where they don't grow this is dessert Arctic and Antarctic.

They are grown and put at different places because of their decorative beauty. Buying and selling them is a big and profitable business plants traded are hybrids originated in South & Central America tropical Asia and plants from greenhouses in countries such as Netherlands and other lots of people are growing orchid plants under different climate conditions and the very interesting is that today they have developed artificial materals which looks and feel almost natural. Often it needs to take the orchid pland iwith the hand and check it is it natural or human made. 

Today nothing can hold anyone back to buy orchid since they are easily available on a worldwide scale just see our pictures of dendrobium cattleya oncidium mokara vandas and other.

After two centuries of poaching and looting of wild plants in their orchid natural habitat the creation of hybrids gave nature a real break. No need for poaching anymore just go to the internet or have a look in the nursery if you are around South East Asia a visit to a Thai nursery the Singapore or Kuala Lumpur orrchid garden will make your day. To achive this labs are crossing hybrids continuously for more colors and shapes plus new combinations to be more resistant. They are common today actually any plant on the market to buy is this hybrid variant, most are better to handle than species. It is not a big problem anymore to keep them since today’s plants are relatively cheap and widely available.

Means they are easily to be replaced by a new when there is a problem. Although they can be found almost anywhere on the globe but the real beauties come from tropical or subtropical regions. Some wild orchids grow there on trees in the rain forest mangroves and in rock crannies. Most are half-terrestrial and epiphytic.

This plants can be divided into monopodial and sympodial groups. Monopodial orchids like vanda and aerides are growing upwards from a single point and the flower appear atop a long stem.

The sympodial group can growth in several directions, but with cattleya, its only one direction.

Orchid plants are the most prolific, thousands of varieties are out there in nature and thousands more being created by cross breeding. About 600 new varieties are coming up each year either through the discovery of new species or the creation of new hybrids.

There are even some orchids flowers, which do not engage in the normal process of photosynthesis as most plants do, but actually live from a fungus in the darkness of a cave, read more.

One of the largest families are Phalaenopsis also know as phal. They can grow in just about any environment although the majority of are growing in tropical environments and they are are real fragil beauties read more.

This array of blossoms is real attractive and they are also not difficult to grow they just need the same "food" and environment as most other of the family.

What orchid flowers need?

The right temperature air circulation and moisture most of them  let the roots hang down and take what they need from the moving air. Yes, they feed on air what a great idea, imagine all humans would feed on air; many problems wouldn't be on mother earth.

Now, what about outside? Since they are plants originated in a tropical environ again less water is better. so what? As an example, I've put some gorgeous dendrobium into a coconut shell and fixed them on a palm tree in front of the house. If that is the “weather side” the showers of the monsoon kill them, ergo they also need a good shelter for not being exposed to the power of nature.

A good watering tip is to mix fertilizer into a spray bottle and give it to the plant for the right water mixture. Ask at the shop where you bought them for the mixture. When everything is done right the orchids will show gorgeous blooms, not all year round but most of the time. When disaster strikes and maybe one of these beauties die, don’t worry just buy another one or more.

One of the good things of the new communication age it's easy to order them. When possible visit a nursery they have plenty of them for either take away the grown flower or the seedlings. With seedlings always be careful that they come in a sterile container otherwise, problems will come.

How to raise this beautiful orchid?

Considering all this different types and diversities they are relatively easy to handle. Basics are sunlight and water plus some fertilizer just mixed into the spray bottle.

The best is just stick to a certain type such as a Thailand  vanda maybe some cattleyas or a dendrobium there are many variants and once you get used to your colored beauty becomes routine. Since most people don’t have a greenhouse the normal place an orchid will be in the non-tropical area is indoor. Actually in Thailand are countless orchid garden because the climate fits perfect to the flowers.

Another subject does you want a plant just growing maybe up to around 30 cm or another which will hang down maybe for a meter and more as it is with dendrobium species and hybrids. After some experience with them you might get another one or two, maybe more since they really are a feast for the eyes and that’s the best possible in a house. The positive impressions the plants make everywhere are the hues. This is especially true when you are on vacation, buy some of them and have them in the room to give an individual touch, if there is no vase just cut an empty water bottle and that's an excellent container.

In a Thai Orchid Nursery are phalaenopsis plus cymbidium maybe some cattleya and more to choose from.

It is a good idea to check out the different kinds before you buy so that instead of having to work too hard to just hang them in a pot.
