Resurrect a wilting orchid
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 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.
