I repotted my orchids after the blooms fell off and honestly the placement isn’t as cute as the grocery store had them positioned- BUT I am feeling the green against the brown and gold! I never really cared for orchid leaves before only the blooms! But the leaves are actually very pretty and I’ve grown to have so much appreciation for the roots too πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Pros - the pot has drainage holes everywhere to allow the roots to breathe aswell as prefect drainage!

Cons - I had to fill my tub in order to #ButtChug water her and had to use way to much orchid food to accommodate all the water that was used. And after she sat in it for 20 min I had to watch alll that water and orchid food go down the drain 😭😭

I love that as a planter! 😍 Going to have to get a mixing bowl or something big enough to use for butt chugging to save on orchid food πŸ€”
@PlantMompy hey Ashley!! Thank you!! And yes! I was thinking about that - it would have to be one of those large bakery ones and maybe that has a lid so I can store whatever water is left πŸ˜‚
@Vjunc ohhh, that's a good idea!
@PlantMompy thank you Ashley for always being helpful πŸ™πŸ™πŸ₯°
@Vjunc I know you have some cons but it turned out so good!!! 😍 I was waiting to see what you’d do with that bowl. #Inspiration πŸ€” πŸ’š
@MrsSmith thank you Monique!
Really pretty! I’m a bit nervous about the orchid liking a metal pot…
@Roserade we’ll see how it goes 🀞🏽🀞🏽 if it doesn’t go well I’ll just use it as a fruit bowl 🀣
