I have another flower that I'm going to submit, and I have to say it has been gaining more and more popularity over the past few years. I thought I would teach you "how to draw orchids, step by step". The orchid is a flower that resembles a houseplant in many ways. First off, they are grown in pots, or thick glass jars and or vases, and require very minimal care. Orchids have long, thick, hard stems that branch off into a single piece, and have a cluster of flowers or blooms on them. I have been seeing more and more of these flowers being sold in the garden section at places like Home Depot, Lowes, and even Wal-Mart. These plants are incredibly beautiful, and hey come from a specie of plant that contains more then twenty eight thousand different breeds of orchid. Remember the type of orchid that I was telling you about? Well, that particular plant is called a “monopodial growth”. These types of plants have a centralized stem, and then at the tip, a few blooms will blossom. I have always thought that orchids where big, long, lustrous flowers, but I guess I was wrong. I think I was mistaking this plant with the Magnolia. Magnolias are very pretty plants too, maybe I will do a lesson on that flower. Like I was saying before, orchids require a very easy maintenance routine. If growing or keeping one of these pants in your home, they will need to sit by a bright sunny window. In the winter months, it's important to give these flowers as much light as possible. The humidity levels for the orchid is simple, just a regular pot with some decorative pebbles. The pebbles act as an excellent evaporating stone that lets loose humidity for the flower. As with other houseplants and flowers, you should always mist them daily with a spray bottle. The nozzle should be set on a misty stream. Since orchids grow in bark, or planting fibers, its important to water your flowers whenever the medium feels dry. I drew purple colored orchids because I think that color is the prettiest between the two. The second choice color is a light pastel pink. Anyway, I hope you guys like learning “how to draw orchids, step by step”. I will be back shortly with more drawing fun. Peace peeps, and happy drawing !
