Beautiful orchids! I have never had one. African Violets do well in a north or east facing window, at least for me.

I love the pottery, really brings out the flowers. I have never tried to cultivate an orchid before in an indoor garden, the one in this photo is beautiful.

That's a very nice photo of the orchid - worth framing. Personally I haven't tried to cultivate one either - something else to do next year.

I agree with Indoor gardening Enthusiast, a beautiful photograph.


For Orchids make sure you have a good growing media especially for orchids. I use orchid focus grow and bloom for nutrient. For light, I use a small 2' fluorescent with both red spectrum and blue spectrum bulbs. The red spectrum bulbs help with the flowering.
