THE BAMBOO ORCHID IS A PIECE OF NATURE YOU CAN TAKE HOME WITH YOU. IT LOOKS WONDERFUL ANYWHERE AND SUITS ANY INTERIOR DESIGN. WHETHER YOU LOVE INTERIORS WITH AN EXOTIC FEEL, A MODERN SCANDINAVIAN LOOK WITH LOTS OF WHITE, OR INTERIORS WITH BEAUTIFUL RAW ELEMENTS, IN THE RIGHT POT THE BAMBOO ORCHID SETS OFF EVERY STYLE TO PERFECTION. WITH A CHOICE OF DIFFERENT COLOURS, YOU CAN CREATE ENDLESS VARIETY AND THERE’S ALWAYS AN ORCHID TO MATCH YOUR HOME INTERIOR.
The exotic appearance and scent of the Bamboo Orchid fits perfectly with the exotic botanicals trend. The Bloomin’ Orange and the Sweet Pink are completely at home here. The fiery orange and the playful pink and white orchids sit beautifully in the soft pink, blue and hot sea-green colour palette. Brass-coloured pots with exotic prints or glass pots with a metallic sheen lend the orchid the right look. This trend combines the orchid with other plants that look like they’re out of the jungle. Create a real statement by choosing the intense violet tint of a Mystic Purple.
Styling idea: cut off a flower and frame it in a glass frame to turn your orchid into a living painting.
The pure simplicity and beauty of the Pure White Bamboo Orchid sits beautifully in minimalist and modern interiors. A group of plants in a large bowl or a single plant in a sleek white or black pot on a console table creates a real statement in your home.
The Bamboo Orchid is also right at home in a rugged and raw interior style. The clouds of flowers in a variety of colours are real eye-catchers in a raw interior with concrete walls and old wooden beams. They immediately look very different when you plant them in metal cans or a clean laboratory test-tube. Arrange them together on old wooden tables or in old auction crates.
A Bamboo Orchid has a beautiful root structure and can grow well in shallow water. It looks really impressive in an old vase or a test-tube, and that’s all you need. Carefully remove the orchid from the pot and tease and shake most of the soil from the roots. Then rinse the roots well under lukewarm water until the root structure is clean. Place the orchid in shallow rain water at room temperature. Check regularly that the plant still has enough water.
To keep enjoying your Bamboo Orchid for a long time, taking proper care of it is a good start.
- Sit your Bamboo Orchid in a well-lit spot in your home, avoiding direct sunlight. It is far too bright in spring and summer.
- In common with other orchids, do not overwater the Bamboo Orchid, but do not allow the soil to dry out either. Water the plant every 5 days in the summer. Every 7 days is sufficient in the winter
- Submerging your orchid is the best way to give it water. Submerge the plant and the pot in lukewarm water up to the edge of the pot for a minute or two. Leave it to drain thoroughly on the worktop or on a plate. Dispose of the surplus water on the plate.
- For a healthy orchid in bloom, treat it to special orchid food once or twice a week; you can halve the amount in the winter months.
- After flowering, the dead blossoms will fall off by themselves. Once it has completely finished flowering, move the Bamboo Orchid to a well-lit, cool spot. Water the plant occasionally so that the soil doesn’t dry out. After 8-12 months, the orchid may develop new shoots and flower again. To promote growth of the new shoots, cut the dead shoots back to around 10 cm.
- The Bamboo Orchid likes to sit in a pot that is not too big; it needs repotting only after 2-3 years if the pot has really become too small. To repot, shake the soil from between the roots and place the plant in a new, larger pot with fresh orchid soil.
