Add Some Razzle Dazzle With Our Beautiful Micro-Mini Orchids!

Presenting the Pure Beauty Micro-Mini!

There’s a new kid on the block. The micro mini orchid! A sweet little orchid that makes a perfect gift for your hairdresser, administrator or just thinking of you that comes nicely packaged.

Micro-mini orchids are a little different in the caring department than the larger sister. Micro-minis require more attention in watering part. Because they are smaller the water dries up a bit more quickly than in the larger phalaenopsis.  The water check should be done between 5-7 days of watering, again, depending on the conditions that the orchids are in. About 2oz of water should suffice for this orchid to be happy!

Pure Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes!

Watering is always key for orchids. Light of course helps. Natural light works best. We all love the sun, so do the orchids! Too much sunlight gives them sunburn and not enough makes them unhappy.  Yellow leaves, dropping flowers and leaves, usually a sign of too much water.  Brown on the leaf means too much light. It seems much for the sweet orchid but the satisfaction much outweighs the work! Enjoy!

    The vase is just a package, right? I should take it out, or the orchid needs it for support?

      The pearl beads are acting as a moss medium. The orchid is in a plastic sleeve surrounded by moss. The pearl beads are water-based, non-toxic and environmentally safe. The concept was created so that the orchids have a water supply and less for the consumer to worry about. We have tested it and the orchids seem to do really well for weeks in this supply. Not too much sunlight, it will dry out the beads quicker. What you will find is that the orchid itself does not have to get watered, you will need to add water to the pearl beads because the beads will start to shrink. Once this happens, you pull out the orchid and leave it aside, add lukewarm water to the beads, about 1 1/2 cups, and they will expand in about 4-6 hours, give or take. Leave the orchid aside until the pearls expand to their original size. Proceed to place your orchid back into the vase by pushing it down into the pearls. Repeat when necessary. One more important fact, do not flush the beads down your drains dispose of them in the trash.
