    Hi Nancy,

    To do a search, simply click the "Search" dropdown menu at the top right of every screen. Here, you can select to do an 'Advanced Search'. Click that and you will have more search options.

    When searching, avoid common terms like orchid and bloom. Use specific terms. Also, if you want to search for more than one thing, type it with the '+' sign between words. For instance, to search for blue cattleya orchids, you would want to type blue+cattleya in the search box.

    Good luck!
