There are literally orchids with ice cubes on them.” This is what planty_hoes and other Instablogs together with a number of horticulturalists say about ice-watering orchids. These flowers are massively popular among plant fanciers. And it’s not surprising at all. Their glossy leaves and uniquely shaped eye-catching flowers make them houseplant-lovers’ all-time favorites.
