Thanks to our Florida weather, we have almost a constant supply of the most beautiful varieties of Phalenopsis, Dendrobium, Cymbidium and Vanda orchids. Joy personally selects the best of the crop.
We pot them in unique containers and add accents to make them really special. They can be used for parties, weddings, any occasion really. They usually last 30 day to 60 days. Once the blooms are over, put them outside and chance is they will bloom over and over again.

Despite their elegant, graceful appearance, orchids aren't difficult to care for, and by following a few simple guidelines, many varieties will bloom for you again next year.
Keep your orchid in a well-ventilated spot with partial shade, away from radiators, air conditioning, and strong drafts. To help maintain theright level of humidity, set the planter in a tray of pebbles and water so that the pot sits out of the water. This prevents the roots from rotting, and allows the moisture to circulate.
Orchids gain their water from the relative humidity in the atmosphere, they do not absorb water in a traditional way from the roots and soil.
For stability, orchids are often potted with the roots in a growing media that should not be overly wet. Orchids require a period of dormancy during the winter in order to bloom again in the spring, so allow it to rest in a sunny spot, and don't water it at all during this time.
When its blooms are gone, cut the spike an inch above the foliage, leaving the old canes in place.
