Cymbidium Orchid in Ikebana

Most of my Cymbidiums are blooming right now. Each stem has many flowers. I cut a couple of them to use for my Ikebana arrangement. Which base do you like better?
Peace lily leaf and cymbidiums (in water tube).
Coral rock as container

Materials: Peace lily leaf and Cymbidium
Cut one side of the leaf off and use one side tape to place a
 wire up the center of the back then bend as desired.
The Chinese characters mean "Spring air."
 My Cymbidium orchids are always in bloom
 in February.

  1. Beautiful! I just purchased a stem of Cymbidium orchids, and am looking for inspiration for my arrangements. I like the top base best.
