Chapel Hill/Carrboro's supplier of locally grown orchid plants
Most Vandas (aside from Phalaenopsis) have high light and high humidity requirements that make them somewhat more difficult to grow at home in northern climates, as opposed to south Florida, where many people just hang them in the trees and watch them thrive. Most members of this orchid family originate in southeast Asia.
This winter I have been working a 9-5 job in Raleigh, so I have had less time than I would like to keep this blog up to date. I will add to the sparse descriptions as time allows.
The early spring-blooming orchids are starting to pop. As you probably know, most orchids bloom in either the spring or the fall with many fewer in summer and mid-winter. I like spring flowers the best; after winter I am ready for some flowers! Oh, and the Brassavola nodosa has been in on our bar in the dining room for 2 months now, perfuming us every evening!
