Orchids are beautiful and unique flowering plants that you can keep in your home. Often considered difficult to care for, there are varieties that can be grown in the home. They do require good light, some humidity and proper temperatures but most anyone can keep one of these gorgeous tropical house plants with a little care, proper watering and some patience.

There are thousands of types of Orchids but only a few can be kept successfully in the average home. These include Phalaenopsis, Cattleya, Cymbidium and Dendrobium orchids. You will find one or more of these types of Orchid available at most stores that sell indoor plants.
