We are always searching for plants & flowers that do
well indoors during these long winter months.
If you have never heard of “Moth” orchids then listen up.
Potted Moth Orchids are a year-round flower that does well

A decorative container or simple elegant white vase filled
with moth orchids are even easy for a beginner gardener. Most folks can be easily intimated by their
sophicated look but they shouldn’t be. A
potted moth orchid requires little attention and maintenance.
As new variations in color, size and blooms arrive, even
