Orchids are one of the most exotic and stunning flowers available on the wholesale flower markets. Originally, all orchids were imported from hotter climes, but nowadays are successfully grown in carefully regulated greenhouse conditions in Holland.
Wholesale Orchids are ideal wedding flowers and can be used to create bridal bouquets, table arrangements, pedestal displays, button holes, decorating wedding cakes, table settings, serviette holders etc with brilliant effect, never failing to add a touch of class.
A far as commercially available cut wholesale orchids are concerned there are four main categories – Cymbidium Orchids, (also known as Boat Orchids), Dendrobrium Orchids, (also known as Singapore Orchids), Phalaenopsis Orchids, (also known as Moth Orchids & often miss-spelt ‘phalanopsis’) and Vanda Orchids.
Cymbidium Wholesale Orchids.
Cut cymbidium wholesale orchids, (known in the trade simply as ‘cymbids’) are available in two slightly different varieties – mini cymbids and large cymbids. Mini cymbidium wholesale orchids are available in stem lengths of 40cm, 50cm & 60cm and have smaller flower heads than large cymbidiums. Large cymbidium wholesale orchids are available in stem lengths of 60cm - 80cm tall and have larger flower heads than mini cymbidiums. Both large and mini varieties are available. See availability chart for availability.
Dendrobrium Wholesale Orchids.

Caring for Orchids
To get the best from your wholesale cut orchids please read the care instructions below carefully:
- Most orchids arrive with water bottles attached to the stems. Please note this is for transport purposes only.
- Remove the water bottles.
- Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food.
- Place the orchids in the buckets.
- Leave over night to condition before using.
- Orchids are tropical flowers, so they must be kept warm. A centrally heated house is perfect.
- 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).
- Keep the orchids in a warm place and always keep out of the way of children.
