Awesome....best thing about orchids i think is that they grow in shade.

Yes indeed and they grow very well indoors in room temperature/light and the best part is there bloom outlive for couple of months unlike any other indoor plant and water requirement just once a week don’t require any soul to grow their growing medium is very different comparatively to other plants. They are very jazzy and put five star in your interior décor though every plant dose but they are special to somewhat, I’m short of words (vocabulary) to praise them and it’s a must to have.

Na Arif sb it’s not that hard to look after them but it’s all about the time and commitments, here my routine is very busy and has some time constraints that is the only reason I want to give them away because instead they may die because of less care instead I will prefer to hand them over to someone who can enjoy and take good care of them and I will keep only one for myself and they are not so fussy plants rather they are the best indoor plants I have ever came across and the best part is they keep bloom for at least couple of months

Umer we can have them in our climate all that they need is room temperature and day light but not direct sun light and best plant for indoors and when you buy it make sure its fresh means the stalk should have buds instead of blooms because once their bloom die they bloom after long time and their special fertiliser is also available in market or otherwise they require nitrogen and potash

Where about is that nursery and for how much they are selling each plant
