What can grow in these baskets
The openings on the baskets facilitate drainage and air circulation that orchid roots thrive in. This brings the growing environment closer to the natural habitat of orchids. For the first 2-3 months after reporting in our wood baskets you may need to water your orchids more frequently (once every 3-4 days). After that period when the potting media can absorb water better, your orchids will thrive as their roots will never rot in the basket. Orchids always bloom much better and the blooms last longer when their root system is stronger.
Our wooden baskets are designed so that they can be used for majority of orchids (such as Cattleya, Laelia, Dendrobium, Brassavola, Stanhopea, Epidendrum, Lycaste, Masdevallia, Miltonia, Odontoglossum, Oncidium, Phalaenopsis). Our wooden baskets come in various sizes to allow from seedling to specimen orchids. They can be used either as hanging baskets or table top ones. Most of the popular growing media, such as bark, sphagnum moss, coconut husk, charcoal can be used with these wooden orchid baskets. If you wish to use small-sized potting mixes, a thin liner of coconut fibres can be placed inside the basket.
