Have you ever worked in this way with Coral Fern? I love it when we can come up with techniques that create a completely new dimension to a certain material. Here's to the beauty of Coral Fern, one of the OrcaGreens from Adomex.

As a floral designer with a penchant for innovation, I'm always on the lookout for materials that can elevate my creations to new heights. One such material that has consistently caught my eye is Coral Fern. In this blog post, I'll delve into the practical aspects of working with Coral Ferns and share insights into how it can transform your floral arrangements. In our Slava Rosca Floral School, students come to me for these reasons.

Coral Ferns Short Stems? Who Says?

Let's start with the technique. Lengthening the stems of Coral Fern is key to achieving the layered effect that gives bouquets that airy, transparent quality. It requires attention to detail, but the results speak for themselves. By carefully manipulating the fern's stems, we can create compositions that are both more elegant and striking.


What sets Coral Fern apart is its dynamic nature. Thanks to its hydration and dehydration process, its appearance can change from one day to the next. This adds an element of unpredictability to your arrangements, keeping them exciting.

I Love Nature 

While Coral Fern is often dyed or colored around the winter holidays, I'm a firm believer in its natural beauty. There's something timeless and elegant about the unadorned form of coral fern that speaks to me. It's a versatile material that can complement a wide range of floral combinations, adding depth and texture to any arrangement.

But beyond its aesthetic appeal, working with Coral Fern teaches an important lesson in floral design. It's a reminder that green foliage deserves just as much attention as the flowers themselves. By embracing simplicity and transparency in our creations, we can create arrangements that are not only visually stunning but also respectful of the natural world.

So the next time you're crafting a bouquet or arrangement, consider incorporating Coral Fern or any other OrcaGreen into your design. With its subtle beauty and understated charm, it's sure to make a lasting impression.
