May Orchid Shows

Orchid shows take place in every corner of the globe this month, so it’s a great time to grab an orchid fix. Many are perfectly timed on the second weekend of May for Mother’s Day. The schedule will slow down next month, since summer heat complicates orchid logistics in the Northern Hemisphere. You can buy a gift for Mom, and scratch that orchid itch at the same time.
