flask necklace

The idea of terrarium necklaces has become popular online over the past couple years. The plants in those necklaces are almost always succulent and cactus seedlings. I've recently gotten very interested in making some, but think it would be cool of expanding outside of succulents. Then I got the idea of flask necklaces. A single, decent sized orchid seedling inside of a miniature flask that you can wear. Do you think this is a good idea? Would you buy one?

Those are really neat. Years ago, my kids bought me a keychain with a little cactus. It quickly outgrew the little bottle and I had to pot it. I always hoped that our local florist or card shop would sell them.
You could probably sell them at orchid shows, at least in the beginning and then slowly expand your business....

Thanks! I plan on opening my own tropical plant store anyways. If I do start making them I'll be sure to sell them there. And I'll be sure to make them available to you guys for a discount

Yes, that is a good plan, too. You can connect your store up with Amazon and sell them through the internet, too. I think that this is a very cool idea. Good luck with it!
