Did you know...that you should never plant an orchid directly into a metal or glazed pot??  Orchids leaves and roots are extremely sensitive to those materials and your orchids will not flourish in them, or even worse die.

Always plant the orchid in a plastic or non glazed clay pot, then put that in your decorative pot.
