Perhaps you may not think much of them, but the purple orchid is everywhere. These eye-pleasing, fantastic flowers have infiltrated the American culture. Don’t believe it? Consider this: When Calvin Klein needed to spice up his perfume Eternity, he added a twist by creating Eternity Purple Orchid.
And when a resort and spa in Livermore California was searching for a name, what did they choose? The Purple Orchid Inn Resort and Spa. So if you need your own dose of inspiration, perhaps you should consider purchasing a purple orchid plant. Read below for several examples of different places where you can purchase a purple orchid of your very own.
One of the best places to find orchids is your local nursery. While they may not have a vast array of orchids, nurseries do provide constant care, correct watering and perfect temperatures for your plants. Seeing the plants in person provides a better level of choice for you.
Specialty Orchid Stores
The only problem with nurseries is that they do not specialize in any specific plant, but rather grow a wide variety of plants. Visiting specific orchid stores, however, will allow you to pick from a larger group of orchids. In addition, you can inquire about how to specifically grow the breed of orchid you purchase and choose from products specifically designed to produce beautiful blooms on your orchid.
There are several different places you can go on the World Wide Web to find the perfect purple orchid of your choice. The first place to turn is online plant stores. While there are stores that sell all different types of plants, there are also specialty stores that focus on orchids and orchids alone. In addition to online stores, there are also online auction sites to consider. There are pros and cons to using online sources.
On the one hand, the internet allows you to connect to breeders not only on the local level, but globally. You can choose from the best orchids the internet has to offer. On the other hand, the internet can be a quirky place. Don’t be fooled by claims of having the “rarest breed” of orchid and that sort of thing. In addition, transportation threatens to place orchids in places with not so perfect temperatures, moisture conditions, etc.
Regardless of where you purchase your purple orchid, consider adding this one of a kind plant to your plant collections.
