This is written in a country where the orchid is grown. It has information that is new to me. It is a really good article, touching on growth, pollination, medicinal uses & more.

And a bit more, including medicinal information.

I have found young plants to buy in Canada, but they cost a lot once you figure in shipping costs. Then, if they arrive okay, you need to keep them going for many years before they flower. They can be grown successfully indoors.

I'm not sure if it would be easy or hard for me. Sometimes I surprise myself with plants (either way). I think I could succeed with all the tips I've read, but I would certainly be taking a risk on my investment. You need to be dedicated!
