Orchids have a reputation for being difficult to grow when in fact many varieties make excellent house plants. With proper care an orchid can be in bloom for months each year and can live indefinitely. If you are new to the world of orchids, don't be afraid of them. Many orchids can be easy to grow if you take some time to learn what they need.
In this episode of "A Garden Runs Through It", Colusa County Master Gardener's Gerry Hernandez and Penny Walgenbach discuss orchids and more.
