Orchid sale still on!

It's time to talk about the orchids and the bees. There are so many different types of orchids, it's hard to keep track. Wasps seem to like one in particular however, because it mimics their mating hormones, thereby tricking them into picking up pollen and depositing it onto other flowers. 

Check out this great BBC Worldwide clip that offers a more complete explanation as well as funny images of the confused wasps attempting to mate with orchids! Keep in mind that you can get a discount if you type in "orchid" when you order orchid plants online from The Flower Pot. Our sale is still on!
