Orchids Under Glass

For a pretty display on my kitchen table, I decided to "kopy kat" an idea I saw in the January issue of "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine. The article explains how to put orchids creatively in tall vases. An orchid expert tells how to keep the orchids' roots healthy while they are in the vases. I have been downsizing my vase collection so I don't have the straight-sided vases that I used to. I did find three former (spigots are broken) clear glass drink dispensers in the attic. I turned the spigots towards the window so they are less obvious. I found three orchids on sale at the grocery store on sale for only $10 each. I had intentions of following the directions in the magazine for keeping the roots moist while they are out of the pot and under glass. The problem was that when I got the orchids out of the pots and into the glass containers, I loved seeing the twisted and curly roots. I didn't want to cover them up with rocks, etc. I did think that the jars needed more orchid medium to not look so skimpy so I got some more at Home Depot. To get the new orchid medium down in the bottom of the containers in the places that needed it, I used a technique I learned when I was making terrariums. Making a funnel out of paper and placing the narrow end where you want the medium (or soil) to land in the container, guides it without getting stuff on the leaves, or places that you don't want it. Another tip is to to use a cork on a wooden skewer to move the medium (or soil) around as needed without trying to get your hands or fingers down in the glass (and perhaps breaking a leaf). Here are the containers with more orchid medium in the bottom and around the base of the roots. The magazine's instructions say to disassemble the orchids, rocks, etc. every 7-10 days and soak the roots in tepid water then reassemble them. Because my roots are exposed, I give them about ten spritzes of water everyday (trying to get to all the roots in the bottom of the container) to compensate for any lost moisture. I move them to the kitchen area for their spritzing so I don't get water on the wood table. So far the roots are staying green and look happy. The atmosphere inside the containers stays moist for an hour or so everyday. When the flowers fall off I will re-pot the orchids. For now I am enjoying not only the flowers but also the roots of the orchids under glass. This was a very easy project to copy...you might like to try it also and give it your own spin! Here's a good image to "pin" for Pinterest ...

Fertilizer Supplements: Is Epsom Salt Good for Orchids?

Orchid fertilization is not a complicated subject, but the more you immerse yourself in the different possibilities, the more fascinating it gets. Well, at least for me… I once thought that fertilizing with a balanced fertilizer, 20-20-20 year-round was sufficient. Then I read about not using one with urea nitrogen in it. Then the question came up about using Epsom Salt for fertilization. In all, is Epsom Salt good for orchids?
