Orchid Gift Guide

As the world’s largest and most diverse plant family, orchids provide a great way to personalize your gift choice. There’s an orchid that’s right for just about everyone.

If you’re buying a gift for an over-waterer, try a Cymbidium, Masdevallia, Miltonia, Paph, or Vanda. These types need daily watering.

For an under-waterer, try a Cattleya, Dendrobium, Epidendrum, or Oncidium. These like to dry out well between waterings.

If your gift recipient lives in a warm climate, try a Phal, Paph, Cattleya, Dendrobium, Oncidium, Vanda, or other warm grower.

For those who live in a cool climate, try a Cymbidium, Masdevallia, Miltonia, Odontoglossum or other cool grower.

Along with the orchid, it will help to give the link for basic care here at AboutOrchids. That will wrap up your holiday gift nicely.

    Be careful what you wish for! You can still kill all the daily-water-variety with overwatering. Overall excellent buying tips. Thanks.
