If you want an elegant, intricate lei made from a simple flower, then you should buy double orchid leis! This lei uses dendrobium orchids sewn in a spiraling fashion to give it a distinguished, full appearance. Different colors of dendrobiums can be used to create a variety of patterns, although double orchid leis in solid colors are quite attractive by themselves.
Dendrobium is a genus of orchid that grows well in tropical climates, and especially in the Pacific. These are hardy orchids that flourish in the summer, and become less frequent in the wintertime. The tend to have a mild, sweet scent, and remain pliable if properly hydrated. Dendrobiums make great houseplants, and their flowers make attractive leis. The Dendrobium orchids that we use in our leis come from local flower nurseries in Puna and Kaʻu. We use each orchid shortly after they are harvested, for optimal freshness. Each orchid is strung into 40 inch strands, packed, and refrigerated until you need them.
Lin’s Lei Stand is owned and operated from Hilo, Hawaii.
