orchids encased in large glass vase?
Even though several orchids that I've had have died, I've recently been gifted with 3 orchids - 2 oncidium and 1 dendrobium. We have 2 cats that have been predominately responsible for orchid failure in the past - predominately because of chewing on them and or just upsetting them. So, after being gifted these orchids, I just kept them in the original pots with the original plastic around them - and they are doing great! I'm just not sure that this is the best long term solution.
While at a Trader Joes the other day I saw a display of orchids where they suggested putting the potted orchid in very large, very tall glass vases. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find any further information. Would this be a good idea? If so, what are the particulars?
- thank you, Cecilia
