Moth Orchid - When you desire peace and serenity, a blooming orchid is what you need. Its' name comes from the petals it is has that resemble the rounded wings of a moth. This plant originates in tropical regions, therefore, it prefers high humidity. The best place to set it in your bedroom is by the east- or west-facing window, or near an open northern exposure with no obstructions. They bloom once a year, but you can expect them to remain in bloom for many weeks, or even months. Simply place the orchid in a saucer, or cache pot, to keep any excess moisture from damaging your furniture or flooring. The moth orchid can grow up to 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide.
