Here are some items that a new orchid owner would find as a fun and helpful gift to go along with their new orchid.
Ice Cube Trays
Your Just Add Ice Orchid only needs three ice cubes, once a week for proper watering – it’s just that simple! With the growing trend of fun, creative ice cube trays, you’re friend or family member can add a little flair to their weekly watering routine. Just be sure the ice cubes equate to ¼ cup of water.
There are many beautiful round or square ceramic and clay pots that are designed for orchids. Choose a pot in the favorite color or style of your loved one. Or better yet, add a personal touch! Stencil a unique design onto the pot to create a lasting impression.
Just like other house plants, Phalaenopsis orchids are hungry for fertilizer. Specially formulated orchid fertilizer is required in order to keep the plant looking and growing its best.
Orchid spikes need to be held with flower clips. You can include whimsical flower clips in colorful butterflies or dragonflies designs to replace the standard clip that arrives with the Phalaenopsis orchid.
