About White Orchids : The orchid's name originates from the Greek orchis, meaning "testicle," and its history is one of lust, greed, and wealth. Some orchids are called "ladies' fingers," "ladies' tresses," or "long purples." White Orchids were collected extensively during the 1800s; once, four thousand trees were cut down for the orchids growing on their branches. The white orchid is a flower of magnificence that brings a universal message of love, beauty, wisdom, and thoughtfulness. In China white orchids signify refinement, and the innocence of children. A pink orchid conveys pure affection; the popular cattalya orchid denotes mature charm, and is often used in corsages for Mother's Day.

White Orchids Need Special Care: White Orchids benefit from extra special care. Contrary to popular belief, white orchids have a good vase life, as long as they are kept in water. When u buy white orchids, the stems may come in water tube or wrapped in wet cotton wool. This should be removed, and the stems re-cut and placed in fresh water with flower food as soon as possible. White Orchids should be kept away from heat, draughts, fans, air conditioning units and anything that may cause moisture loss. Frequent misting of the flowers with water is recommended. If they look limp, place them in water – flower head and all – for up to one hour. White Orchids should also be kept away from fruit, vegetables and decaying flowers, as orchids are especially susceptible to ethylene gas.
