Pugh’s Flowers offers instructions on the proper care for various flowers and plants. We want our customers to purchase floral products that will have an extended life so that they or their recipient of the gift may enjoy the beauty for the longest time possible. For example, if you decide to purchase an Orchid for Administrative Professionals Day, we have specific instructions to care for these delicate flowers. We will ensure that you have these so that you may pass them on to your special person when you give them the Orchid.

To extend the life of your orchids, change their water daily and give their stems a fresh trim every 2 – 4 days to ensure proper hydration. Cut off excess leaves and even orchid blooms that fall below the water line to avoid buildup of bacteria that could be harmful to the overall flower or arrangement. Removing any dead blooms or leaves throughout the life of your orchids will also help to increase their longevity.

Be sure to handle your orchids with the utmost care as they are a delicate bloom. With two hands for support, gently pick up your orchids so the fragile stem does not break. Although they originated in tropical and subtropical climates, orchids thrive best in locations that are not overly warm and do not receive direct sunlight. Since orchids can be harmful to our furry friends, display them on a tall shelf or in a place where your pets cannot.

Even if orchid flowers fall, you can continue caring for these blooms and encourage more growth. Simply eliminate the dead bits of the orchid and ensure it has fresh, clean water daily. This way, you can enjoy your orchids for weeks!


The orchid is one of the most exotic yet long lasting of blooms and this one will bloom for up to 4 weeks. We will dress it up in a decorative container and add charming accents to make it a lovely gift. Colors and containers will vary. Orchid care instructions: Place in Medium to low light, in temperatures from 65 – 85 degrees and water with one “simple shot” full of warm water per week. Do not over water.
