Introduction: Coconut Husk Planter for Orchid
Recently, I'm having an interest into cultivate an orchid. However, I don't have an orchid. Luckly, one day my friend heard my plead. He gave me plenty. (Wow, how big was my smile at that time!)
Now, the main question is how to plant it. My friend said that an orchid will look best in nature. It struck my brain an idea. There is a coconut palm that I grow near my house. Why not I use the coconut husk for the planter. Plus, it will look NATURAL.

Step 1: Items
An orchid stem
A coconut husk
A coil of iron wire
A wire cutter

1. I cut the wire about a foot using the cutter.

Step 3: The Stem
1. I carefully insert the stem through the hold made by the twisted wire.
2. I make sure the stem is sturdy so that it will not fall off.
3. The remainder of the wire which poke out of the back, I fashion it as a hook.
