Orchids are a great choice for a long-lasting gift. With proper care, orchids can last several weeks if not months! Here are some care tips for the phalaenopsis orchid, which is the type in our special.
The phalaenopsis orchid prefers low light, preferably from the north or east. You will know if it's getting enough sunlight by the color of the leaves: Too dark means not enough, and yellowing leaves mean too much. If the leaves are bright green, the lighting is perfect.
Orchids are happiest in temperatures that make YOU comfortable. Daytime temps of 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temps of 60-65 degrees are ideal. Orchids prefer this fluctuation in temperature, and without it, may refuse to flower. They also prefer some humidity as they are native to the rain forest, so bathrooms with indirect sunlight are the perfect household location. If you live in Phoenix, you may want to increase your plant's access to moisture by placing your plant in a shallow dish of pebbles and water, keeping the water below the top of the pebbles. Don't let the pot touch the water or the roots could rot.
As a general rule, water your orchid once every 5-7 days. Let the orchid dry out between waterings, and never allow it to sit in excess water.
When finished blooming
When the last bloom drops, cut the stem halfway down. Continue caring for it just as you have for weeks and cross your fingers for a possible rebloom!

Just today at our Chandler location, a woman came in a second time in one hour for happy hour flowers. The first time she had bought flowers for her son, but on her way to deliver them to him she couldn't stop smelling the stock she had bought. The smell brought back fond childhood memories of visiting a stock farm in California with her mother. It brought her such joy, she just had to come back and get more for herself! Now that's the power of flowers.

Why so cheap? Well, little does our friend Cupid know that roses are actually NOT great for florists or lovers in February. In fact, roses are a summer flower and are in their prime in June. So that means there is an abundance of roses in our hemisphere right now, as opposed to at Valentine's Day when florists' delivery vans get stuck in snowstorms. So...we think Valentine's Day should be officially moved to June.

Our delivery zones have not been affected by this move. In fact, we are in the process of looking for a new north Valley location that will allow us to expand our delivery zones even further north.
We have also opened a new location in Chandler at Alma School & Germann Rds to expand our services in the east Valley.
As our business continues to evolve, we appreciate your loyalty and are grateful for allowing us to be there for all of your life's most special moments.
