Cultivating Orchids & Crafting Terrariums

Orchideria is all about nature and learning.

Hi! I'm Amanda Matthews, the person behind Orchideria.

I've made it my goal at Orchideria to provide solid research in orchid care. My objective is to provide a useful resource of free information about orchids and terrariums which could also promote peace. Working with nature cures the soul.

This educational website is an online guide full of in-depth tutorials, articles, and explanations that teach you how to care for your orchids. My mission at Orchideria is to connect you with nature so you can find harmony and serenity.

Once your orchid is healthy, learn how to craft it into an exotic floral design or create a unique terrarium.

Connect with nature

Contrary to what many people say, orchid care is easy!

Working with orchids and terrariums takes the accumulated stress off life, as you tend to the roots, leaves, and substrate. Even if you've never owned an orchid before, with our easy-to-follow tutorials at Orchideria, you'll discover that they are a breeze to take care of.

Plus, you'll discover a hobby that not only will soothe your soul, but can be quite profitable, too.
There's a massive quantity of topics that I could write about orchid care and cultivation.

What's the best substrate or potting mix for your orchid?

Which is better: sphagnum moss, fir bark, pine, charcoal, soil, or leca pebbles? 

How do I water and how much water do I use?

The information on orchid care and terrariums is endless terrariums.

Take your mind off life

 Invite nature into your life. At Orchideria, I want you to learn about orchids, but I also want you to find tranquility.

Exotic orchids with their mesmerizing colors and shapes can be easy to care for if you have the right information. Working with plants is a wonderful way to find peace, relax, and create something beautiful to keep inside your home.

"Having the privilege to live overseas in a tropical habitat for most of my life, I naturally became an orchid enthusiast.

Once back home in the USA, I spent my free time recreating a cozy place for my orchids. I had to relearn everything I once knew about orchid care, since now I was facing harsh winters in Kansas and incredibly hot summers.

This website was the by-product of extensive research on how to recreate that environment inside my home.

By no means do I consider myself an expert but I'm an avid learner and willing to share the little I know with others. There are thousands of different ways to care for orchids, and the more we share, the more we learn.

What started out as a hobby has now grown into a passion, producing an online resource of quality information on how to connect with nature.

If you'd like to see the uncommon story of my life and how I ended up overseas in the first place, check out my author page."
