What kind of plant is this?

I saw this and wanted this for my home. Just wondering what it is so I can do more research?

Just looks like a type of green orchid in a glass vase.

Check out a nursery that carries a larger number of orchid varieties.

Just google image search "green orchid":


Be careful if you have cats or dogs... orchids are deadly for them if ingested.

Cool thanks. It looks like it's encased in a tubular vase with water 1/5 of the way up. Weird how it lives in water, not soil.

And OP, it's $100 bucks for a flower in a vase. Seriously?

I'm still confused on the narcissism. Do people now-a-days have no self awareness?

Please help me understand,

It's a cymbidium orchid. They also come in yellow and white.

You can go to any florist and get a single branch. Use a knife or scissor and cut of the tip and submerge in water. You can even snap off the actual orchids and put them in smaller vases such as a square or petri dish to let them float. Add a small floating candle on top and light to attract women haha. Just kidding. Either way, they should last awhile (more so when still attached to the stem)

Making it yourself should cost you no more than $15 including vase, rocks, and orchids.

But if OP just buys the $100 pre-made version he'll have more time to let the flower bring him women.
