Gardening expert secret to keep orchids alive and to avoid 'killing them with kindness'


The orchid is an interesting flower, especially its name. The family name for the plant, Orchic, literally means testicle in Ancient Greek.

In Middle English, some orchids were called by an amusing name, a colloquial and now considered rather a rude name for a teste followed by the word “wort”, which meant plant.

They need little watering and don’t enjoy direct right sunlight.

Orchids generally are best placed behind a curtain that lets light through.
