But if you are looking for something different then we have created something very special for you: an impressive plant decoration that you can make yourself with Phalaenopsis as the radiant centrepiece! How do you make it? You can read about it here or in the video. 

Items needed:

  • Potting soil

Step 1: 
Half-fill a large pot with potting soil.
Step 2: Remove the plastic pots from the plants and immerse them in a bowl of water.
Step 3: Distribute the plants diagonally across the pot.
Step 4: Press them down firmly with some extra potting soil.
Step 5: Distribute the plants until the pot is nicely filled, leave some space in the middle for the orchids.
Step 6: Place the orchids in the centre of the pot. Make sure that a little orchid soil remains between the roots.
Step 7: Place the mini-orchids on the edge of the pot and drape some of the roots over the edge.
Step 8: Water the arrangement if the soil feels dry or the plants start to droop.
