Fun Flower Facts
Is it appropriate to send a plant to the funeral home? If so, will the funeral home send it to the family after the service?
Yes, it is appropriate to send a green or flowering plant. Some funeral homes will deliver plants or flowers to the home if specified. In some cases, we may make arrangements to pick up the plant after the services and deliver it to the family. Otherwise, the funeral director will simply notify the family members that they may take the plants with them after the service.
How do I take care of my orchid plant?
Orchids enjoy pretty much the same climate as we do however they do not like temperatures much below 50 degrees. The potting medium should be kept damp but never soggy. Keeping them too wet will only result in root loss. Water your orchid early in the day and be careful not to get any water into the top of the leaves. Fertilize every 2 weeks if possible and re-pot the orchid at least every 12-24 months.
