Very nice Dries. What type of Orchid is this ? What soil mix is used in these baskets?

Basil,
The one you are referring to is a 'made in China', synthetic plant in choir. It was used as a table display at a show in the UK where Fritz exhibited. These artificial baskets are very popular in hotels, offices et. in Europe and the USA indoors.
I know that Braaks now produce special hanging basket mix that retains more moisture.

Nice photos

Hanging basket filled with plants are always fabulous, I actually have some Orchids growing in hanging baskets and they are doing very well.
