Orchid Plants – Types of Orchids

Here is some orchid trivia: Did you know that vanilla comes from orchid plants? The vanilla “bean” is actually a pod that is produced from the vanilla orchid plant known as vanilla planifolia which is a species of vanilla orchid.

The vanilla planifolia is found in the West Indies and Central America.   It prefers tropical climates that are wet and hot. The flowers of vanilla orchid plants are greenish-yellow and they only last for one day. If fruit is desired from the plant the flowers must be pollinated manually during the morning. To produce fruit the flowers must be hand pollinated as there is less than 1% chance that the flowers will pollinate on their own. Fruits are long pods that are produced only on mature plants. The pods will mature after five months at which time they are harvested and cured. The curing process ferments and dries the pods with minimizing the loss of essential oils. Vanilla extract is obtained from this part of the plant.

There are several different types of orchids and at All flowers and gifts we have beautiful phalaenopsis orchid plants that are great gifts for all occasions. Phalaenopsis orchids are thick leaved plants with arching sprays of elegant blooms. They range in colours from white, yellow and pink /purple tones.

T98-2A - Teleflora's Opulent Orchids

Opulent Orchids – White Phalaenopsis Orchids Are Elegant & Beautiful

Growing orchids is not difficult; here are some steps on how to grow orchids:

  • Light – phalaenopsis orchids like low light and can thrive in an east window or a shaded west or south facing exposure. Orchid plants do not like direct sunlight.
  • Water – the phalaenopsis orchid grows from a single stem and does not have a large water storing capability and as such has a low tolerance for drought. During the growth season water the plant when you see the exposed roots turning silvery white which would be usually weekly. During this stage try to keep the potting media slightly damp. When the flowering stage starts decrease the watering to every other week. In higher the humidity it is important to maintain a good air flow around the roots and leaves.
  • Fertilizer – During the growing stage, fertilize the orchid plants weekly with an orchid fertilizer. Decrease the frequency to once a month during the winter and flowering stage.
  • Temperature – the phalaenopsis orchid likes temperatures between 75 – 85 degrees during the active growth stage, but they can adapt well to house temperatures of 65 – 70 degrees.
  • Blooming – Phalaenopsis orchids bloom typically in the late winter and early spring. They have long lasting flowers that are held on arching branches. The flowers of Phalaenopsis orchids can last for many weeks.

The History of Mother’s Day and The Importance of the Carnation

The origins of Mother’s Day can often be thought to be traced back in time to many ancient rites, which had symbolic and spiritual origins, such as many Goddesses and symbols of motherhood that were celebrated. Mother’s Day is a celebration that honours motherhood, mothers, maternal bonds and the influence that Mothers have had on society. It is an American invention and it is not directly related to the many celebrations that have occurred throughout the world over the past thousands of years. May 10, 1908 was the first official Mother’s Day celebration that took place in West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. White carnations were given out to every Mother that was in attendance at the celebration in Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.   Today white carnations are still very important as they are used to honour Mothers that are deceased. Pink and red carnations are used to pay tribute to Moms that are still living. In 1914, the second Sunday in May was signed into being the day of national observance, in which the second Sunday in May was declared as Mother’s Day. From this date on, this holiday flourished in the United States. Flowers became a very important part of the celebration especially the white carnations.

Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many countries; however there are some countries that have different days set to celebrate, most commonly in March, April and May. Over 70 countries observe Mother’s Day.

To celebrate this special day Mother’s Day cards are often given as well as flowers which are a very popular gift to give in celebrating with Mom’s. Carnations have always been a popular flower, however today we have a wide variety of beautiful fresh flower and plant arrangements for Mother’s Day. Choices can range from traditional, to modern and contemporary. Whatever the choice, Mother’s will always appreciate and treasure a gift of flowers on this special day.

How to choose Valentine’s Day Flowers for Every Age and Every Stage of Love

The true essence of Valentine’s Day is telling someone you love them, and traditionally we expect that this would mean a romantic expression of love that is between two people. However as we look at the expression of love between two people, which is much like love itself, we have realized that this changes throughout one’s life cycle. We can divide our age groups into 3 different groups when deciding on what type of Valentine’s Day flowers to purchase.

  1. Teens and 20’s – First Love
    With this age group we can view love as that of “first love”. It can be viewed at as being very emotional, and passionate. Valentines Flowers that are most often chosen in this age group are those of the traditional dozen red roses.Precious Roses
  2. In the middle – Middle Aged Love
    With this age group of love, middle aged love can come in a few different ways. There may be love between couples that have been together for a number of years. There can also be love between couples who have left other relationships and are now in a phase of courtship. For this group of individuals, the tradition of flower giving is made more with choosing Valentines Flowers that are longer lasting and that have a combination of flower types which may include Roses.

  3. The Golden Years – Long Term Senior Love
    For the seniors group love may be long term, new or perhaps dearly departed. Flowers are especially treasured within this group. On Valentine’s Day it is important to remember that all segments of love have important aspects. Within this age group, fresh cut Valentine flower arrangements or flowering gift baskets are very popular. T91-3A - Pretty in Pink Azalea
