There is no doubt growing orchids is good
for your health. Some 15-30% of heart
attacks are caused by high levels of stress.
So many of us, after a long day of going and
going, just want to take a few minutes (or
longer) with our plants. Tending to or just
looking at our orchids, helps us to relax
and can relieve the stress of the day.
Can't get enough good air? Those with
large collections can. 300-400 plants are
needed to produce enough oxygen to
sustain one adult human. OK, we know pride
comes before destruction, but all of us have
to admit that we feel just a little better
when we do a nice job of growing our plants
and when they bloom, Look Out! But
seriously, people that love to grow orchids
are some of the nicest and most relaxed
people you will ever meet.
