Native to Singapore, the mokara orchid is a result of cross-breeding the ascocentrum, arachnis and the vanda orchid. It was created and presented to the floral community in Singapore in 1969. It loves a humid environment, the plant produces flowers well in this climate and is a hardy plant great for any beginner plant-lover. As a flower, it has a broad spectrum of colours and makes a strong centrepiece when single colours are grouped together.
The mokara orchid has a vase life of approximately 14 days and will stay beautiful when kept away from direct sunlight, with a fresh change of water and a small snip on the stem daily (for a fresh surface area to better absorb water).
Single variety flowers come wrapped in brown paper with a water bag. This ensures sufficient hydration for the flowers so that they remain fresh between the time it is put together and when the recipient receives it.
Here are the number of stalks you will find in each size:
Standard — 16 stalks
Large — 30 stalks
The mokara orchid is a short-stemmed variety, ideal for coffee tables or side tables.
