The power of pairing orchids and green plants

Combining orchids with green plants is a match made in design heaven. The contrasting textures, colors, and heights of these plants create visual interest in your interior. Here are a few tips for successfully pairing orchids with green plants:

Use different heights

Mix and match tall orchids with smaller green plants to create depth and dimension in your space. Hanging planters can also add an interesting vertical element to your decor.



Create focal points
Place your orchids and green plants strategically to draw attention to specific areas of your home, such as the dining table, a bookshelf, or the kitchen.
