Orchids in large glass vases?
I have a question about this setup and if it will work or what needs to be changed. The idea is the water at the stem of the vase sit amonst the rock and pebbles, and i have the spagnum that sits just above that hopefully grabbing the evaporation of the water.
But there isnt much eavoporation, one because its not been too hot, and 2 I question the amount of circulation. I would guess its a tempered glass vase, so drilling holes in it is not an answer. Is this worth keeping like this?
Ive used the old media right now from what I inherited them with until I decide what to do.
I just looking for other alternatives to always cheap plastic pots, and something that looks a little more natural or different. Driftwood was another option Im thinking about.
What would you do? Take them to plastic pots again or keep them like that.
The other think im wondering about was that orchids will not bloom if they dont feel a little tight so I read. Which I dont understand as in the wild the roots look quite free and open environment and not so bunched up. The idea here is keeping them all together might give a more close knit feel??
