MOST POPULAR ORCHID VARIETIES
Cattleya: Cattleya orchids are native to Central America and South America, but you can find them right here at Thrifty Florist. We recommend that you position your cattleya orchid in an area where the temperature will range between 70°F and 80°F. They can tolerate temperatures as high as 90°F, if they're given enough light. These are also extremely popular because they come in so many different colors (including white!) and are relatively easy to grow. They're often used as cut flowers because they last a long time after being cut from their parent plant.
Cymbidium Orchids: Cymbidium orchids are a type of orchid that is native to China and Japan. They're popular for their ability to grow in a wide range of temperatures, as well as their long blooming periods. Most cymbidium orchids grow in clusters and have thick leaves with pointed tips. Their flowers are usually white or pink, although other colors are available. It's important to note that cymbidiums bloom on new growth and don't last more than a few days after they open.
Dendrobium Orchids: Dendrobium orchids are one of the most popular types of orchids available. They're also one of the most diverse, with over 1,000 different species across their genus. They're called "dendro" because of their growth habit—the flowers grow from the ends of long, slender stems. The name "bium" comes from a Latin word meaning "tree," which refers to their tendency to grow vertically along tree trunks in tropical forests. Dendrobium orchids are native to Australia and Malaysia, but they've been cultivated in other parts of Asia for centuries as well. They are also grown in tropical areas around the world.
Oncidium Orchids: The Oncidium Orchid is another popular choice among those who love orchids. This type of flower grows best indoors but can also be grown outdoors if desired; however, they need plenty of sunlight so make sure they get plenty every day. Oncidiums come in a wide range of colors and sizes, making them perfect for any space—whether you're looking for something small enough to fit on your windowsill or something large enough that it can be seen from across the street.
Phalaenopsis Orchids: Phalaenopsis orchids, also known as moth orchids, are one of the most popular types of orchid. They are named for their resemblance to the moths that pollinate them (the phalaenid). The flowers are typically small and fragrant, with a color range that includes whites, pinks, purples, and oranges. The leaves on these plants can be green, variegated, or mottled. These plants are so popular that they make up more than half of all the orchids sold in the United States each year.
Orchids are the most diverse group of flowering plants on Earth, with over 28,000 registered species. Orchids are native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world. They are distinguished by their unique pollination methods: unlike most other flowers, orchids have both male and female parts in the same flower. The majority of orchids grow as epiphytes (air plants) in tropical forests, where they receive nutrients from fallen leaves and other organic matter in the soil below them. Some species grow on trees as hemiepiphytes (half-epiphyte) or lithophytes (rock plant).
