Program: P. Allen Smith's Garden Home

Are you looking for a unique gift to give a new mother? Not only are they easy to care for, they're beautiful and will last for several months! New mothers need simplicity in their lives whenever they can get it. Just Add Ice Orchids are so easy to care for, all you do is add three pieces of ice to the container once a week. The ice melts and distributes just the right amount of water that the orchid requires. You can't get any more simple than that! This arrangement is simple. Just tie a baby rattle to a floral pick and insert into the orchid pot. Mom gets an outstanding orchid and baby gets a toy! Give it a try!
