Colorfuze Orchids Are Blooming In Kaleidoscope Colors

Lavender, blue, purple, yellow, and green a kaleidoscope of color infused in orchids that were inspired by nature. Yellow Tropics inspired by the vivid citrine color of the hibiscus.  The Blue azure waters in the warm and soothing, tropics make a Blue Diamond. The verdant, crisp green farm land inspires Limelight. Lavender Myst inspired by the periwinkle hydrangea in full bloom in a garden.  Purple Fusion comes together when the sunsets and the mountains develop an amethyst glow that lasts for miles.  You received one of these impressive orchids and not really sure how to care or what do with it other wanting to gaze at it all day!

These beauties are our Phalaenopsis or white moth orchid. We use a special patented process that allows us to “infuse” the orchids and creates the majestical color on them. Care for them as you would a regular phalenopsis orchid. They require 4ozs of water every 10 to 15 days.  Depending on the temperature in your home, if it is too hot, too humid, not humid enough or drafty, will vary times on watering your orchid. Place your PBO Colorfuze orchid in a visual spot that is not too sunny. But a place that receives enough light for it to shine!

As with most plants that you receive from the greenhouse, florist or supermarket, allow for some blooms or buds to drop quickly. We strive to keep our orchids safe from the temperature change. Sadly nature just doesn’t allow us to sometimes. Once the orchid acclimates itself to your home , you should enjoy quite a few months with it.

As far as the most asked question on our Colorfuze orchid-“Will it grow back to that beautiful color I received it in?” Unfortunately the answer is no. Once the blooms have all died and you trimmed back the stem, the new growth will be the original color the orchid is in, in which case most are the white orchid.  The purple fusion will re-grow in a fuchsia color.  Food coloring will not change the orchids as much as the “infusion” does.

No reason to dwell on the orchid when it dies!  Live in the now and show it off to all your friends, neighbors and relatives to the special treat you received or acquired. They all will admire you for having such beauty around!
