Display gorgeous orchids in a mod metal planter filled with soft moss and groundcover. This arrangement uses chartreuse sedum and Spanish moss for high-contrast against colorful orchid blooms. With the right materials, this project is super simple and ends up looking sleek.
Fill bottom of planter with Spanish moss, pressing the moss to the sides and leaving a hole in the center. This will result in a bowl-like shape.
Soak sphagnum moss well in a container for at least 30 seconds. Then, slightly wring out excess water and put the wet sphagnum moss in the center of the Spanish moss.
Leaving orchids in their nursery pots, tuck them within the sphagnum moss so they are held in place and covered with it.
Add a 1 inch layer of potting soil on top of the sphagnum moss.
Thank you for this simple yet beautiful idea! My Aunt just moved into a residential facility, did not take her orchids. I brought them home and made three small spheres. I knew she had a siding glass door to a small patio. The orchids and her glass clowns are the first things she sees every morning!
Thank You again!raf
