Orchid Gifts Under $100

Guest Author - Susan Taylor

Non-Profit and Conservation Organizations
Non-profit organizations have suffered greatly from the worldwide economic downturn. A donation in the name of your orchid lover to any of the following organizations would be greatly appreciated and help save orchids in the wild:

Join the American Orchid Society and you will receive 12 months of the acclaimed Orchids magazine with monthly information on how to grow and what is new in the orchid world. Membership includes free or discounted admission to botanical gardens around the United States.

The Orchid Conservation Alliance is a private organization which supports the purchase or lease of lands in South America to save populations of native orchids.

The World Wildlife Fund, although specifically geared to saving species of animals also saves and preserves the forests in which they live. Donations to saving land in the Amazon Basin, the Congo Basin, or Borneo and Sumatra will also save orchids in their native habitat.

Books
Books are another love of orchid growers. One of the best new books out for 2009 is The Marie Selby Gardens Illustrated Dictionary of Orchid Genera available directly through the garden at Selby Gardens. If your grower has specific books he or she wants two great sources are Balogh International and Orchid Books.

Clothing
The most beautiful clothing with an orchid theme that Iíve come across is from Miloís Bali Orchids . Their clothing is available in both menís and womenís versions and truly lovely. For the man in your life, take a look at Capitol Ties for silk ties with a Cattleya theme in a variety of colors. Artists Gifts has the best price on a tote bag and umbrella featuring orchids on a black background. A really nice looking ensemble.

Growing Supplies
Jermic has updated their moisture meter for orchids. This product is very useful for almost any grower since watering is one of the most difficult environmental conditions to judge right when growing orchids. The Jermic Moisture Meter takes all the guessing out of it. Hydroponic or semi-hydroponic growing is becoming increasingly popular with orchid growers. Supplies can be found at First Rayís Orchids in many different configurations. And for virus testing kits, visit Agdia Testing Services to order virus testing strips in groups of 5 or 25. These strips are perfect for the hobbyist. For the advanced hobbyist who is looking for a specific plant, Olympic Orchids has an Orchid Finders service to locate specific special plants.
