PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Ooooh ORCHIDS! There’s nothing quite like the beauty of tropical plants to take you away from the cold and grey of a winter’s day, and you can enjoy a free exhibition of Enchanting Orchids, weekdays from 9 to 5, at the McLean Library on the 1st floor of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society at 20th & Arch Streets.
You’ll see a wide range – from easy-to-grow orchids that you find in the grocery store, to more exotic varieties. There’s also an array of free workshops during the exhibit that you can attend at lunchtime or in the early evening to learn “How to Re-Pot a Phalaenopsis,” or pick up some “Indoor Orchid Photographs Tips & Tricks.” Plus, it’ll get you in the mood for the 2012 Flower Show, where this year’s theme of the Hawaiian Islands makes it a pretty good bet we’ll see that too many orchids are never enough.
‘Enchanting Orchids’ runs through February 10th – with an orchid sale on Thursday the 9th in case you just have to take some home.
