A new attempt that incorporates captivating orchids
Nature Aquatic Plant Wall, which we have been promoting since last year, is drawing attention in various events. This layout was exhibited in Tohoku Orchid Exhibit & Garden Festa 2019 (Yume Messe Miyagi) held in Sendai from January 31 to February 4 at the organizer’s request. In order to make the underwater section and the above water section of the layout appear more naturally connected than previously introduced Nature Aquatic Plant Walls, various epiphytic aquatic plants are attached to extra-large, sloped Unzan Stones, and many aquatic plants are also grown in the underwater section. Since this layout was a part of an orchid show, a variety of orchids were incorporated in the above water section. However, only a few orchids bloomed at the time of exhibit since it was difficult to make all the orchids bloom at the same time period. The family of orchids is epiphytic and loves high humidity. Therefore, it goes together well with the wall system. It is a group of plants that we hope to incorporate into this type of layout in the future.
