Your Phalaenopsis orchid may come in a pot, but that doesn’t mean it has to stay there. In fact, creating a unique orchid arrangement is one of the best ways to transform your plant from a mere decoration into a statement piece.
Here are six beautiful phalaenopsis orchid arrangement ideas to provide a little inspiration.
1. Combine orchids, anthuriums and succulents
This arrangement isn’t just beautiful to behold—it’s also interesting.
With so many different textures and colors, combined with the varying heights of the plants, this arrangement is sure to add intrigue to any room in your home.
2. Create an orchid terrarium
Terrariums allow you to see the full makeup of your plant—from flowers and stems, all the way down to roots in the soil.
This presentation would be especially great for orchid lovers with children who are interested in learning more about how plants grow.
3. Add intrigue with antique accessories
Don’t be afraid to stretch the boundaries of what can be a good home for your orchid.
Antique accessories like the silver container seen here are perfect for incorporating your orchid into other stylistic elements of your décor.
4. Hang in a birdcage
Let your orchids take flight by placing them inside an ornate birdcage and suspending them from the ceiling.
They may be a little more challenging to water, but the dramatic appeal will be worth it.
5. Go horizontal
What’s better than one orchid? LOTS of orchids!
Try repotting several orchids in a long horizontal planter, then sit back and enjoy the elegant cascading effect.
6. Use a basket
While you’ll still need an inside planter pot, replanting your orchids in an interestingly shaped basket is a great idea for a casual arrangement or a gift for a friend.
The sky’s the limit when crafting a beautiful orchid arrangement, so don’t be afraid to make your vision a reality.

Choose planters according to size required for your plants for various purposes and locations.
Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
