Nature has a way of designing beautiful and fancy patterns, textures, fragrances, and a mosaic of colours. We see all these personified in orchids. Orchids are epiphytes (creeping plants) that lodge themselves onto wood and bark of live and dead trees. More common in tropical rainforests, orchids have stunning blooms that showcase from the ends of each frond. Humans have domesticated a wide variety of orchid species and turned them into ornamental flowers. Today, with variegation and crossbreeding, orchids come in stunning colours and designs. Better yet, we can have them in our homes and gardens.
The most common way to design orchids is in a bouquet arrangement. Orchids go well with almost any other common flower species such as roses, gerberas, carnations, sunflowers, peonies, and tulips. They add colour and life to gaps in between rose bouquets and are relatively cheap when compared to other flower selections.
Orchids are also perfect for standing arrangements. At Flower Chimp Hong Kong, our flower experts arrange stunning ensembles of standing sprays and flower baskets with orchids in them. Congratulatory flower arrangements are the most common varieties with orchids and are ideal for grand openings and big celebrations. You can find them at the top of our list below.
If you love potted plants, orchids are the choice for you. Even if you are a beginner plant-collector, an orchid is one that you should try. Orchids require little time and effort to care. Simply set them on wood chunks and dried moss, water them, and set them near a window with filtered sunlight. Soon, they’ll reward you with beautiful flowers and you can earn the title of Orchid Collector in no time! You could even propagate orchids from their roots and stems. Phalaenopsis orchids are commonly sold as ornamental plants and can be propagated using this method. So, the next time you receive an orchid in a bouquet or flower arrangement, don’t throw it away. Keep it and grow it.
