Orchids are wonderful plants, very easily grown in regular planters, or even fine pottery - using a pumice wick beneath sphagnum moss, or pumice stones alone as the media.

This Phalaenopsis orchid plant grows year round in a lovely ceramic pitcher and blooms faithfully every year. The only maintenance it needs is a cup of water every three weeks. Any orchids, from Phalaenopsis to Paphiopedilums, are easy to grow in decorative vessels with no drain holes.

When any vessel like this is used as a planter, since there are no drain holes, use a
'water level test kit' to determine how much, and when to water. Enjoying your blooming orchid plant in a wonderful presentation like this is a great pleasure, and very easy to achieve.
