Orchids are more than just plain colorful garden plants. You may be amazed by the many other things they can be used for. Yes, I know that right now, nobody can actually be crazier than Charlie Sheen and his many quotable quotes about his goddesses, curing his brain, and winning. But instead of learning all of his famous lines by heart, why don’t you take some time to read the following unique uses for orchids? I’m sure that pretty soon you will be seeing these plants in a different light!
Move Over Victoria!
First of all, orchids can make for great summer swimwear and sexy lingerie. Compared to most other flowers like roses or tulips, orchids have thicker petals that give you ample coverage where it is needed (especially if you forgot to wax). Just make sure that you don’t strut your orchid swimwear right after lunch, it might wilt before you get out of the water!
Till Death Do Us Part
Are you a constant victim of heartache and one-week stands? Devote your time and attention elsewhere. Dogs may be man’s best friend, but they are known to be flea-infested most of the time. If you are looking for companionship, orchids would make for great life-long partners. They don’t demand too much attention, they are not clingy, and they require random watering.
A Natural High
If you are not a resident of California and you desperately need some sort of enlightenment, then orchids may well be the new marijuana! You get the same heady feeling from sniffing them yet orchids are legal, safe and non-habit forming. You don’t even have to dry them out before you use them. When you need to be uplifted, simply open your backyard door and get a much-needed whiff! How’s that for a change?
Are you deeply in-debt? Instead of filing for bankruptcy and moving to Mexico to hide out, why not pay your debt with orchids? Yes, you heard me right! If you know someone with a collection of these exotic plants, grab a shear and start learning “division”. Sure it could take some time for them to turn into real money but what the heck! Maybe they’ll accept flowers instead. No one could resist the power of these beautiful plants.
If this doesn’t work then go ahead and pack your bags. No harm in trying, unless if you lose your life. On the other hand, if you’ve got tiger blood, then you have nothing to worry about.
Orchids have a lot to offer. These are flowers that have a lot of potential in the fields of science, fashion and romance. Don’t let Charlie Sheen tell you otherwise.
