Biotech Blooms

Anyone can send a bouquet - this is the uncommon way to send flowers. A nutrient-rich gel supplies all that this orchid needs to grow in its sterilized test tube. No water or maintenance necessary - biotechnology does the work for you. When the plant reaches the top of the tube simply transfer to potting soil (not included).

Please note: Because this is a seasonal item, when it sells out it will no longer be available this winter. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Comments about IN VITRO ORCHID:

    I buy birthday gifts for our many clients. After finding out that one particular client in New York was an avid gardener, I set out to find something to "green" up her desk. The only rule was that it had to be under $50.

    Her response to receiving this gift was outrageous. She called, ecstatic about the In Vitro Orchid. This gift is wonderful for garden lovers who are living or working in limited space.

        Comments about IN VITRO ORCHID:

        I gave this orchid to my grandmother in Iowa about a year ago, for her birthday. She is an avid gardner and loves all things flowers. Naturally, she loved the idea of this, and love to watch it grow.

        It did take a while to start to show any signs of growth, but after a few months, the leaf finally reached the top of the cork. She visited her local garden center to get advice on transplanting, and what material to use. They had never seen anything like it, and were amazed.

        One year later, the little orchid that could is on its way to surviving another cold Iowa winter.

        The only thing we wish we could change about this, would be further instructions on what to do once it needs to be transplanted. Orchids are very delicate, and it took a little research on how to ensure it would survive the move.

          Really neat idea. Mine arrived in fine shape, and I've got it in my office. Have rec'd tons of comments about it! I'm just hoping that it survives; so far it's doing fine.

            One day late with delivery, so it sat on my porch while I was gone for the weekend, but the product was packaged well, so it was ok in the end.
