Orchids bring so much pleasure to indoor gardeners year-round. They have very particular needs, so if you have questions, feel free to reach out to our team of gardeners who staff the phones here in Vermont. We're happy to help you select the products that will work best for orchids.
Your breathtakingly beautiful orchids deserve a home worthy of their elegance — and here it is. This cachepot features a glaze that accentuates orchids' graceful shape and jewel-like colors, while providing an ideal environment for healthy growth. What's more, the unique low profile provides visual contrast and a wobble-free foundation for tall flower stalks. No drainage hole; planting directly into this pot is not recommended.
This shallow dish garden is topped with a distinctive glass hurricane shade that shows off blooms and foliage to their best advantage — yet, unlike a cloche, allows excess moisture to escape and fresh air to enter. It's a perfect environment for orchids, ferns and many other houseplants. The ceramic base features deep blue ombre finish with stylish unglazed base. No drainage hole; planting directly into this cachepot is not recommended.
Orchids require a potting mix that provides them with plenty of drainage and aeration yet also holds adequate moisture. This all-purpose orchid potting mix is recommended for cattleya, dendrobium and oncidium orchids. Contains fir bark, charcoal, and sponge rock (perlite).
New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss provides excellent moisture retention while helping maintain proper air flow around roots. Use it exclusively as a potting medium for your orchids, or incorporate it with other ingredients to create a custom mix. Although this type of moss lasts a relatively long time without breaking down, it’s recommended that you refresh your plant with new moss every few years.
Phalaenopsis (moth orchids) are among the easiest orchids to grow, requiring no more care than other common houseplants. Anyone who loves houseplants — from beginner to expert — will appreciate the stately blooms that last for months. Best of all, you can get moth orchids to rebloom without a lot of effort.
It's a myth that orchids are difficult to grow. Yes, some types are fussy, but phalaenopsis (moth orchids) are among the easiest to grow. And the blooms on their tall stems last for several months. Best of all, you can get them to rebloom without a lot of effort.
We planted this sweet dish garden with four pretty, easy-care houseplants: pink anthurium, peace lily, golden pothos, and pink-flowered kalanchoe. It's lovely as a centerpiece or as entryway decor. And it also makes a welcome gift! As the plants grow, they'll be ready for larger digs — bigger pots — and so four plants means it's really four gifts in one!
