Why take the high road and keep real orchids as decorative plants in your home? You can own authentic-looking silk orchids for far less trouble. Not convinced? Well, consider what it takes to keep a real orchid plant alive.

Not only do you need to soak orchids thoroughly on a regular basis. You must also let them drain completely in order to prevent root rot. In the winter months, this means your orchids could be taking up room in you bath tub as they drain. At least in the summer you are able to move them outside for watering sessions. But that’s not without its inconveniences. Orchids do not tolerate drastic fluctuations in temperature well, so if you move yours from the cooler indoors to the hot and humid outdoors in mid-July, your orchid could wilt. Indoors, orchids must always be kept at a balmy 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you are not convinced that live orchids are too finicky for you yet, did you know that regular potting soil should not to be used to pot orchids? They require potting material that allows ample circulation such as bark or coconut fiber, or even tree fern fiber, instead. If you thought you could just scoop some of your usual potting soil into your orchid container as you tend to all your other plants, think again!

If you decide to keep living orchids over silk orchids, just remember that despite all your work, blooming periods are not constant. Orchids go through blooming and resting phases. During the latter, you will have to maintain the same regimen without the enjoying the novelty of gazing upon yours stunning flowering orchid several times per day.

There is no question that live orchids are among the most beautiful flowers you can own, but they sure are a lot of work. Instead you can add silk orchids and virtually none of these tasks to your to-do list, so why not give them a try? All you’ll have to do is dust them off every once in a while.

You are probably only pausing because you are unsure whether they’ll look realistic or plain old cheesy. This is understandable, but your fears are unfounded. The great detail and quality of the materials used to make silk orchids ensures an appearance that is very close to that of living orchids. Not only are they carefully crafted to appear genuine, but silk orchids are also available in many varieties, from cymbidium to phalaenopsis and many more species. Chances are good that you will find your favorite orchid among all the orchids available in today’s market. It’s up to you whether you choose one that comes potted, or one that’s unpotted so you can decide exactly how to feature it. Let the creative juices flow!
