Silver Vase has introduced the Blue Mystique orchid, which features longlasting blooms that shine electric blue on a dramatic single or double spike.
Blue Mystique is not painted or hybridized, but gets its color through a patented process that induces the blue color in flowers.
"The future flowers that are on the stem are going to be blue," says Silver Vase CEO Andrew Bartha. "It's not painted or sprayed. It's the rave in Europe and it's pretty much the trend of the future for certain tones in orchids." The process takes between 48 and 90 hours to induce the blue color.
Blue Mystique thrives in low to medium light and comes in a 5-inch pot.
"We're pleased to give a first look at the hottest new variety the orchid world has seen in years," Bartha says. "Blue Mystique is truly the most unique orchid on the market."
Silver Vase debuted Blue Mystique at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Orders are being taken now.
