In Vitro Orchid

$32.00

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.

Made from
glass, gel, seeds
Measurements
5" H x 1.25" Diameter
Notes
Gel color may vary. Should plant separate from gel during shipping, reconnect the two with gentle nudging. Even without direct contact, the roots will find their way towards the gel and grow. Imported.

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.

i bought this as a gift for my sweetheart and all it did was mold over.
when the product arrived i was it was much smaller then expected, the tube is only about four inches long and the shipping allows the plant to slosh around in it tube, which maybe is not bad. the limited instruction basically say to put it in a warm area, with light but not in direct sun. i did as followed waited about a month and the only thing it grew was mold across the top of the gel solution the plant is in. the instructions mentioned that if it does mold over to remove from tube and plant the orchid start but gives no instructions on the best way to do this, i planted it and still nothing ever happened. so basically i spent thirty dollars plus shipping to grow mold and now i can't return it for a refund because you have to plant the thing if it does not work, and there is nothing to dig up now, the thing rotted away. thank you very little

    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.

            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.
