Sample Answer:
I love Corsage Orchid – the national flower of Brazil. Importantly, the flower grows in every condition but needs warmer temperature. I have a pot containing the flower at my room and they are growing very well. I keep the flowers in my room for their fragrance. They make a vibrant smell in the room. Often people term the flower as orchid queen for extraordinary features. I like this cue card topic and they are smart indeed. Here are the remaining answers of the questions. I would like to thank you for this opportunity to let me talk about my favourite flower.

The plant requires ample light and air to grow. A moderate temperature is a must for the plant to bloom. The temperature needs to be relatively warm and should remain between 50 – 70 degree Fahrenheit both in day and night time for its smooth growth. But the growers are mindful to protect leaves from burning. Better if someone can manage an open area to grow the plant. Due to its easy growing method, the flower is popular among everyone including the professional and amateur gardeners.        

Brazil is located in eastern part of South America. The climatic condition of the country supports the growth of such flower plants. Consequently, the flowers are available in plenty in Brazil. The history of Corsage Orchid to get the national flower status is interesting. Someone discovered this strange flower from some random leaves in Brazil and a few years later, the flower bloomed and enchanted everyone.

Corsage Orchid looks gorgeous. The flower fragrance makes me feel relaxed. The outer beauty of Corsage Orchid is adorable and when blooms, it takes a wonderful look. I love the particular fragrance I get in my room. The amazing colour of the flower enhances the room beauty. A large variety of the flower makes it more attractive to people. They shine brightly. So, I like the flower very much.
