Orchids & Exotics

Most orchids arrive with water bottles attached to the stems. Please note this is for transport purposes only.

Orchids are tropical flowers, so they must be kept warm. A centrally heated house or venue is perfect.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Remove any water bottles from the stems (if any)
  2. Give the stems a fresh cut.
  3. Fill sterilized buckets with luke warm water and add flower food
  4. Place orchids in the buckets
  5. Leave overnight (in a warm environment - room temperature) to condition before using.
  6. Keep the orchids in a warm place and always keep out of the way of children.
  7. Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers).
  8. Orchids are tropical flowers and will not thrive in a refrigerated environment. Normal domestic room temperature will be fine.
