Which Flowers are the Best for Hot Summer Months?

Orchids are unique flowers that come in a wide range of colors, shapes and scents. Regardless of what most people think, orchids are extremely adaptable and once the flower settles in and feels comfortable it will easily continue to grow and bloom. The most important step of orchid care is for the caregiver to understand how orchids work and grow.
The most important step of orchid care is potting the plant. Since Orchids are epiphytes (this means they do not grow in soil, but in the air), they require a pot with good ventilation and drainage. In tropical environments Orchid roots generally attach to trees or rocks so they can capture moisture and nutrients.
During the hot summer months orchids need to be watered heavily in order to stay hydrated. Orchids also don’t require direct sunshine, but they should not be shunned to a dark corner. The best place for your orchid during summer would be a sunny spot with speckled shade.
