Sometimes even the greenest of thumbs have a problems with growing cymbidiums orchid flowers in their garden. There are a couple simple tricks that will make all of these problems go away, according to Port Phillip Leader.

Dappled light is the best for this flower, as too much sun will burn the leaves and to little will leave them wilted. Therefore, the right variation of sun mixed with continuous watering will make this bud bloom. Do not over water however - the easy trick is to see if the soil is moist, if so it doesn't need any more water, according to the news source.

There are many types of orchids, and they mostly vary due to their pollinator. If a flower-lover wants to check out some of the variations, the U.S. Botanical Gardens in Washington D.C., is a great way to see these beautiful blooms among many more, according to VOA News.

Also, if a brown thumb is not allowing a person to share these beautiful blooms with friends and family, they might want to try sending orchid flowers online. This way someone can easily pick out flowers and send them to anyone across the country.
