Orchids are tropical delights that many people believe they simply cannot grow. You can, however, grow these beautiful specimens if you offer then a little loving care. While some species of orchids do require hot, humid, tropical environments, there are many specimens which thrive in much cooler, slightly dryer temperatures. In fact, 50 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperatures preferred by many species. Cymbidiums and Dendrobiums are two species which can handle cooler temperatures.

As you can see, you really can grow tropical delights and non-tropical species of orchids in your home. If you happen to live in a warm climate, you can even grow them outdoors year round. So why not give orchid gardening a second chance by trying some of the orchid gardening tips we would like to share with you here at landscape living.
