/ 05:03 AM September 12, 2018

Use somewire and ribbon.

If your phaleonopsis or “moth orchid” is about to wither, pick out the healthy-looking flowers and make a pretty table arrangement.

Gather the following:


Withering phaleonopsis with some good blooms left
Glass pebbles
Glass cylinder vase
Wire and ribbon

Wrap the wire with ribbon to desired length. Twirl one end of the wire around a glass rock to secure and twirl the other end around the stem of the orchid.


Put colored glass at the bottom of the glass cylinder vase. Submerge the orchid with a tea light floating above it.

Option: You can also just float an orchid in a shallow bowl.

Secure the wire by anchoring it to a glass rock (above). You can also just let the orchid float free.
