Five Things I Learned About Orchids With Terry Furuta Designs

I have been to tons of floral shops in my lifetime but I must say, I have never been to a place like Terry Furuta Designs. Terry has over 43 years of experience in floral and design. She specializes in unique orchid floral arrangements and contemporary floral designs that will definitely nourish your soul! I walked in not really knowing what to expect! If anyone knows me, they know I have a special place in my heart for flowers! They bring me so much joy and puts a smile on my face!

I have only received orchids maybe once and it died quickly lol. Terry was full of knowledge when I stopped by and gave me a quick lesson on how to take care of them and so much more! I stayed for awhile because it really peaked my interest. She was so much fun to chat with and I got to meet her floral designer Jeremy, who’s also a fireman but loves to create exotic and sustainable imaginative arrangements of orchids, mosses, air plants and terrariums.

The floral shop smelled so good and the energy inside was electrifying but I wouldn’t expect anything less because it’s full of crystals and other positive energies. She often uses them in her floral designs, botanical arrangements, and terrariums as well. Speaking of positive energy, I was telling Terry about a situation that I was going through and she gifted me with a piece of selenite. She said it should bring me positive energy, I am forever grateful! Check out more pictures inside and stop by if you’re in the Buckhead area. Her handmade beauties are exquisite for a special person and would be an impressive keepsake for sure!

Five Things I Learned About Orchids:

  • Phaleonopsis orchids are epiphytes, they naturally grown in trees.They hang onto a tree with their roots and receive filtered light through the leaves.
  • Fluctuating temperatures can cause buds to blast or drop on plants with buds ready to open. This often happens during transportation, such as when plants are transported from indoors to a certain winter or summer.
  • You only water orchids with 1/4 cup every 10-14 days for plants potted in spaghnum moss or a mixture. Never get water into the crown (where the leaves join in the center) Too much water causes the roots to rot which kills the plant.
  • Exposure to smoke, cigarettes, paint fumes, old fruit and drafts from air vents can also cause bud drop. And don’t use ice cubes.
  • When the blooms are finished simply cut the stem leaving 2 nodes (brown lines on the stem) Continue watering and fertilizing the plant and it will most likely bloom again.


The Selenite crystal stone meaning is all about purification, clearing, and positive energy. The soft white appearance of the stone is a perfect reflection of its gentle but highly effective energy, which emits white light and high vibrations. Whether you are clearing your own energy field, your environment, or your crystals, the Selenite crystal healing properties are perfectly suited to remove unwanted energy and replace it with light and positive energy.

The Selenite crystal meaning is connected to the higher chakras, namely the crown chakra which is the center of higher consciousness. Through this association, Selenite allows you to elevate your energy and raise your vibration, aligning you with a higher frequency. By filling your entire being with light, you can block out lower vibrational energy to protect your spirit. In this way, Selenite can be used as a protective stone to shield you from darker energy.

My new Orchid, I’m going to name her Sweetie!
