4 Reasons Orchids Are the Ultimate Valentine’s Day Flower

February 11, 2014

Ah, Valentine’s Day. An entire 24 hours that celebrates the love we feel for our significant others. No flower is more associated with this day than the rose. But at Just Add Ice, we believe the orchid embodies Valentine’s Day even more so than the traditional rose. Here, we discuss four reasons why orchids, not roses, are the ultimate Valentine’s Day flowers.

1. Long-lasting Blooms

When you send roses on Valentine’s Day, you know that, even with the best care, they won’t last more than a few days. But that isn’t the case with orchids! An orchid’s bloom lasts long after Valentine’s Day is over, usually up to three months after purchase.

2. Easy to Care For

The best thing about orchids is that they are easy to care for. All you need is 3 ice cubes once a week and your orchid can stay in bloom for up to 3 months. This way your orchids will get the right amount of water each time. Hassle free!

3. Colors Say More than “I Love You”

Red is the color of love, which is why it’s so abundant on Valentine’s Day. The problem with red roses is, well, everyone sends them! Like roses, orchid colors have meanings, and you can use color to send your sweetie a personalized message that speaks directly to him or her.

4. One-of-a-Kind Gift

Just Add Ice orchids grows more than 200 varieties of Phals. No matter which orchid you choose, your gift will be truly unique and special. You can make your Valentine’s orchid even more special by adding a few personalized touches. See the guide “5 New Ways to Personalize Your Orchid Plant” to get started!

Valentine’s Day allows us to publicly cherish our significant others for the unique people they are. Make sure your gift is just as special as your loved one by giving the gift of Just Add Ice orchids.
