PINCUSHION UNDERWATER WORLD
Pincushion Proteas are a great long-lasting flower. They look a lot like a sea anemone when they are under water. They will hold up underwater for several days.
HOW TO DESIGN WITH PINCUSHIONS UNDERWATER:
I suggest you start with a wide mouth elliptical bowl or a glass container that is curved like a bubble bowl. The curves will magnify the flowers.
You will need:
- Pincushion Proteas, Greens to accent
- Floral pin frog
- Waterproof clay stickum
- Stones or gravel
Less is more- remember that everything is magnified underwater. Depending on the size of your container, 3-5 stems are all that you need. Add some Lily Grass or Papyrus as an accent. Cover frog with more stones and gently fill with water 1 inch below the top. If there is any sediment in the water let your bowl sit awhile and it will settle. Orchids are a great match with this arrangement; I have used every variety with Pincushions like Cymbidiums, Vandas, and Cataleyas.
There you go…an interesting underwater arrangement for any occasion!
