Best Orchids for your Home

Despite the myth that orchids are fussy and difficult to grow, many orchids are not as delicate as most people think. They can adapt to the temperatures and light conditions found on the average home windowsill and be rewarding indoor plants. Many orchids are winter bloomers, which makes them even more desirable as houseplants.
