After the admiration of the gift comes the age old question that comes along with any home gift: "Where do I put it?" I finally decided to put them in our bedroom to add pops of color, and give the plants a place where they would receive plenty of morning sun.
Decorating with plants is always high on my list for home decor. They give a room some life and extra color, plus they help clean the air, something we needs in today's industrial society.
Orchids aren't as hard to care for as you think. Usually, they just require 3 ice cubes once a week. Once they get bigger, up the amount to 4. Don't cut off the stem once the flowers are spent; it will rebloom on its own. As orchids age, they grow odd-looking green shoots at the base of the plant. Never cut these off! Orchids are fairly self-sufficient.
Don't they look great??
