Blue Cymbidium Orchid Dyed is a cool, breeze-like flower, gentle in touch with a still capability of presenting a honed inner strength and simple beauty. The bloom itself is a delicate, smaller flower, with five points similar to a star, the background a pure, pale white coloration, streaked over with the outstanding hues of blue. A lip hangs over the bloom, almost completely adorned by that same blue, though small, circular twinges of pink. This also flows upwards into yet another lip, colored with a pale yellow background and hot pink. The statuesque nature of this bloom makes for absolutely stunning bouquets and centerpieces, especially when partnered with Leather Leaf and Nova Zembla White Roses, perfect for weddings, anniversaries, or even just to show a piece of your heart.

This flower is intravenously tinted using a white bloom as the base. Our post harvest team will place the bottom of the stem into concentrated dyed water. This allows the flower stem to “drink up” the colored water tinting the bloom to the desired color. The tint will not rub off from the surface of the petals. However, the color may seep from: where stems are cut, leaves are removed from the stem, or flower petals that are torn especially when wet. This may temporarily stains hands, so wear gloves when processing and designing with these blooms. This dye most likely will stain clothing as well.
The color of this tinted flower may vary to some degree. Flowers can react differently to tints. Some petals may not absorb the tint 100% and the color may be darker on some petals than on others. The color may also appear stronger when the flower first arrives, but will lessen in intensity after it is fully bloomed. The tinted color will bleed into the water and change the water color. Please take this in consideration when making your arrangements.
Expected vase life is an average minimum of 8 days.

Bulk Orchids are shipped directly from our partner flower farms. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. Just follow these simple steps:
Remove flowers from box. If your Orchids do not arrive in water tubes, go directly to step 2. If your Orchids arrive with water tubes, simply check to make sure the water tubes contain water then prop them upright with the tubes attached. There is no immediate need to cut and put them in water. When you are ready to make your arrangements, then move onto step 2. However, keep an eye on the water level inside the tubes. You may need to fill them with water as needed. NOTE: These flowers are a dyed product. The coloring will come off onto hands and clothing so be sure to wear gloves and dress appropriately while processing your flowers.
Fill a container with fresh, cool water to the desired level.
Cut stems diagonally approximately one inch from bottom under running water with sharp scissors or knife.
Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared container.
Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
Blooms toward the bottom of the stem are older than blooms near the top of the stem. It is normal for the bottom blooms to die sooner. Simply remove any dying blooms daily.
Every 24 hours, re-cut the stems repeating the steps above to maximize the life and beauty of your flowers.
Orchids are shipped in full bloom. There is no need to receive the flowers many days in advance for blooming purposes. If you like, you can leave your Orchids standing upright with the stems in the water tubes until you are ready to design the flowers.
Orchids do not like refrigeration; it may damage them. Optimal temperature for your orchids is 18C or 65F. Anything cooler than this could potential be harmful and may damage the flowers.
