Surprising your mother, mother-in-law or grandmother on Mother’s Day with an orchid is a great way of expressing your love for her. The most well-known type of orchid is the Phalaenopsis (butterfly orchid), which symbolises elegance and femininity. The blue Vanda on the other hand is rare and symbolic, standing for peace in India, this orchid is only sold at specialised florists or garden centers. The Dendrobium orchid translates to “life in a tree” in Greek. This orchid has become an extraordinary symbol of love, refinement, beauty, charm, fertility, and thoughtfulness.
Orchids and care
An orchid is an appropriate gift even for mothers who are not too fond of gardening. Orchids can be seen as epiphytes and grow their roots upwards. Because of this, people assume it’s a plant for advanced gardeners, which is not the case. The plant needs watering just once a week (along with nourishment) by draining it in for 10 minutes in a layer of water and letting it leak. Place the plant in a position with access to light, but not directly in the sunlight or in a draught. These tips you will make the orchid and your mother very happy.
