Many people think that  orchids are very difficult to take care of because they are very sensible but if you follow the care and handling steps you can be on your way to have beautiful plants.

Let’s talk about orchids that you buy for any type of events. You may be choosing your flowers with your florist and came to the conclusion that orchids is what you want. The first thing you need to do is choose the color and the type of orchids keep in mind there are plenty to pick from. The most common orchids are the Phalaenopsis, Cymbidium, and Dendrobium which in my opinion are the most commonly used. All of these orchids need to be hydrated while they get to your destination since they are very delicate if you order wholesale in other words they need to travel with water tubes but if you are having your arrangements done by a florist make sure they use fresh cut to ensure freshness that way you arrangements would look stunning.

You may combine your orchids with different types of flowers like hydrangeas, wholesale roses, calla lilies to make it look fuller since orchids can be expensive, but this does not mean that you are going to stop yourself from having what you really want in your wedding or event. My best suggestion is that if you are running a bit low on money get yourself to buy wholesale. Whole Blossoms are wholesalers and we will provide you with fresh cut orchids from our farms and believe me you can save a lot of money.

Now let’s talk about using orchids as your gardening project orchids are the type of plants that is a must have at
home since they are very easy to care of and are very trendy right now. One of my best recommendations is if you are in a tropical weather plant them outside if this is not the case you may want to  use a clay pot which it would help
create moisture. If by any change you are not too big of a fan on clay pots you may use the plastic ones be sure to open some whole around it to help the roots of your plant breathe. Keep your orchids in indirect sunlight and be sure to
hydrate them often.

To finalize I want to give you these tips on how to keep your wholesale Orchids beautiful. Keep Orchids in filtered water at all times. Ideal temperature to achieve long lasting blooms is 55F to 65F during the day and 60F to 62F at night. Do not sprinkle orchid blooms with water since this can damage blooms giving them a transparent look. DO NOT place orchids in the refrigerator since this will damage their blooms. If orchids are going to be arranged after 3 days of being received, cut about one inch of the stem at an angle under water (with a sharp knife NOT scissors). Remove foliage that
could fall under water to avoid bacteria to build‐in and place the flowers in clean, fresh, warm, filtered water (100F‐105F). Rehydrate for at least an hour before using and add floral preservative. If the Orchids are not going to be displayed immediately, try to keep them in a fresh place preferably (50F‐55F) and at least 80% humidity in fresh water with floral preservative. Replace water and floral preservative every other day to ensure freshness. Frequent misting of cut orchids will lengthen their vase life. Orchids are ethylene sensitive and need to be kept in cool places (50F‐55F). Do not remove the pollinia or anthers, remove damaged flowers, and keep away from excessive heat or cold, smoke, ripening fruit, or wilting flowers as this causes premature death.
