What can grow in these baskets
Vanda Orchids are great to grow in slatted hanging wooden baskets as vandas have large, robust roots that are difficult to contain in any sort of pot and prefer to grow freely with ample access to oxygen. Vandas grow from a single stem with roots emerging from the bottom and are primarily epiphytic—meaning they attach their roots to the surface of a nearby plant or debris to obtain moisture and nutrients, rather than growing in soil. Therefore the openings on the baskets facilitate drainage and air circulation that vanda orchid roots thrive in. This brings the growing environment closer to the natural habitat of vanda orchids.
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.
