Warm Growers - Cattleyas/ Vandas and more Image
The warm growing orchids are ideally suited to more tropical areas, but will grow quite happily in cooler conditions (just much more slowly) provided you don't overwater them in winter. The cattleyas are the most spectacular and flamboyant of orchids reflecting a bygone era when corsages where big, bold and kitsch. If retro is not your style, then the newer breeding has produced miniatures, multi-headed and colourful flowers that can be long lasting, fragrant and oh so classy! Vandas are the classic tropical orchid growing well in baskets where their aerial roots can hang free. The flowers are so vibrant, large and textural that they don't look real.
