New this spring are ‘phalaenopsis’ Mini-Orchids being introduced from Costa Farms. These diminutive beauties are about 12” tall and come with 8-10 blooms for under $15. These affordable mini-blooming machines make perfect “living gifts” for Mothers Day, birthdays, house warming and teacher gifts, college students, and your boss and colleagues. In other words, give an orchid to someone – even if it’s to yourself. Available at neighborhood retailers, they offer consumers a great range of colors in both 3-inch and 6-inch pots.
