Orchidmate™ orchid supplies – Wood baskets$0.00
Why our baskets
Unlike many other orchid supplies, at Orchidmate we design and manufacture the wood orchid baskets ourselves. Each of our wooden baskets is carefully handcrafted from Acacia auriculiformis, a rot resistant hardwood, by our skilled artisans. They are proven to last for at least five years even in a high humidity tropical climate. The baskets come with many different unique novel shapes including hexagon, octagon, round, pyramid, and half-moon. Our round wood orchid baskets are considered the most beautiful ones in the market.
More importantly, openings on the baskets facilitate drainage and air circulation that orchid roots need. This brings the growing environment closer to the natural habitat of orchids. For the first 2-3 months after reporting in our wood baskets you may need to water your orchids more frequently (once every 3-4 days). After that period when the potting media can absorb water better, your orchids will thrive as their roots will never rot in the basket. Orchids always bloom much better and the blooms last longer when their root system is stronger.
Horticultural charcoal is proven to be a very effective additive to orchid mixes. It helps absorb impurities in water and fertilizers. Unfortunately, it is too pricy in the US. Our premium charcoal is made of hardwood without any chemical and additive. It is imported directly from manufacturers, enabling us to offer a much lower price.
What can grow in these baskets
Our orchid baskets are generally designed to be deeper (taller) than the regular square Vanda baskets in the market, so that they can be used for most of orchids (such as Cattleya, Laelia, Dendrobium, Brassavola, Stanhopea, Epidendrum, Lycaste, Masdevallia, Miltonia, Odontoglossum, Oncidium, Phalaenopsis). As can be seen in the gallery our Laelia and Cattleya grow and bloom extremely well in these baskets. We offer wooden baskets with various sizes (4″ to 14″) to accommodate from seedling to specimen orchids. They can be used either as hanging baskets or table top ones. Most of the popular growing media, such as bark, sphagnum moss, coconut husk, charcoal can be used with these wooden orchid baskets. If you wish to use small-sized potting mixes, a thin liner of coconut fibers can be placed inside the basket.
