Keep Your Orchid From Getting Sunburned

Dark-Pink-Orchid-Sitting-On-Kitchen-Counter

Curtains are one of the easiest ways to dress up a window and spruce up your décor. They also form a barrier between the sun and your orchid. It’s no secret that orchids demand lots of light, but indirect sunlight is what they really crave.
