One of the best things about orchids is that you can find bloomingorchids year round. At this time of the year, the most popular orchidhouseplant, Phalaenopsis, is blooming. These plants have long gracefulinflorescences (stems) holding large flowers. They will last up tofour months under good household conditions and are a real bargainwhen compared to other blooming plants or cut flowers.

My favorite variety to brighten up a dull January isthe lemon yellow varieties with up to 15 flowers on an inflorescence.Many Oncidium Alliance plants are now blooming with a profusion of small flowers that will move in a breeze. Their fanciful name, DancingLadies, describes exactly how the flowers look as they move. They comein an amazing variety of sizes and colors for all decorating needs and
