Decorating with Orchids

Orchid blossoms are treasured throughout the world for their intricate designs and rich colors. Like snowflakes, no two are exactly the same. Growing live orchids can be a demanding balancing act, incorporating temperature, humidity, light, and potting techniques. Orchid societies and clubs are popular among people who want to learn and share the techniques of growing and maintaining this delicate plant.

Silk orchids from SilkFlowers.com enable you to enjoy these beautiful blossoms year round, and are virtually maintenance free.

In a minimalist or contemporary decor, silk orchids can provide a broad stroke of color - or a sophisticated, understated floral element.

Silk dendrobium orchids can be found in a wide variety of habitats, from the high altitudes of the Himalayas to low tropical forests. They typically grow on trees or rocks. Many dendrobium species are fast becoming favorites of decorators for their vibrant colors and long, reed-like stems. Silk orchids of the dendrobium species come in a thick, glass vase with clear acrylic water.

Cattleya Orchids: Grown from seed, cattleya orchids take 5-7 years to flower. They are native to South America and produce large, dramatic flowers.
