Decorating with Orchids

Orchid blossoms are treasured throughout the world for their intricate designs and rich colors. Like snowflakes, no two are exactly the same. Growing live orchids can be a demanding balancing act, incorporating temperature, humidity, light, and potting techniques. Orchid societies and clubs are popular among people who want to learn and share the techniques of growing and maintaining this delicate plant.

Silk orchids from Petals enable you to enjoy these beautiful blossoms year round, and are virtually maintenance free. Unlike the fabric flowers of years past, the silk flowers of today feature great botanical accuracy. Our impressively detailed petals, coupled with high-quality trunks, foliage, and crystal-clear acrylic water make our silk orchids so lifelike, you'll have to touch them to believe they aren't fresh.

Petals features a wide variety of species, colors, and arrangements to meet the needs of any decorating style. In a minimalist or contemporary decor, silk orchids can provide a broad stroke of color - or a sophisticated, understated floral element. In a more traditional decor, orchids can be an unexpected but exciting stylistic fusion. 

Popular Silk Orchids

Phalaenopsis Orchids:  Silk Phalaenopsis orchids are native to Southeast Asia, the Philippines, and northern Australia. Their name comes from the Greek phalaina ("moth") and opsis ("like"). Phalaenopsis produce large, flat flowers and have long stems. These orchids have four to five leaves at any given time, and popular colors include creamy whites, fuchsia, purples, yellows, and oranges. Silk artificial phalaenopsis orchids from Petals have gracefully arched stems and are available in a variety of planters and arrangements.

Dendrobium Orchiids: Silk dendrobium orchids can be found in a wide variety of habitats, from the high altitudes of the Himalayas to low tropical forests. They typically grow on trees or rocks. Many dendrobium species are fast becoming favorites of decorators for their vibrant colors and long, reed-like stems. 

Oncidium Orchids: The name oncidium comes from the Greek onkos, which means "swelling," referring to the swelling on the lower lip of the leaves. Most oncidiums display rich yellow hues. This oncidium silk orchid arrangement is a sunny spray of color and will brighten any room.

Vanda Orchids: Vandas are one of the most popular types of orchids and display a great amount of variety within their own genus. Vanda orchids are seen primarily in yellow, white, orange, red, burgundy, and violet. Contemporary by design, vanda orchids spill elegantly from graceful heavy glass vases.

Cymbidium Orchids: First discovered in 1799, cymbidium comes from the Greek kumbos which means "cavity". Cymbidium orchids have a distinctive formation that looks like a hole at the center of the flower. They can grow up to two feet tall. Cymbidium orchids look lovely arranged with plumes of wild grasses
