Souvenirs at Lanta Orchid Nursery
have many visitors, who
come to buy an orchid hybrid to place
it in their hotel room or hang it
on the verandah of their bungalow
to enjoy the beautiful flowers during
their stay on Lanta Island.
as it might be not allowed to import
certain species, especially orchids,
into some foreign countries, I decided
to sell bottles with living orchids.
They are grown from seeds in a sterile
bottle and therefore exempted from
any CITES regulation. They contain
3-5 plants depending on the species
and I normally have a choice of
5 or 6 different species available.
Each bottle comes with a detailed
instruction for care of orchid seedlings
in English, Swedish, German, French,
Czech and Russian language. To download,

guests asked me for souvenirs
that are related to orchids but
easier to take home than the flowers.
So I decided to look around and
found some things.
started to sell magnetic
cards with orchid pictures and ordered
small artificial orchids that are
similar to real ones. They are made
from 'Japanese Clay' and are looking
so natural that some visitors at
first glance do not believe they
also have marvelous jewellery creations.
They are made from real
orchids, which have been covered
with a protective coating and are
then lowered into tanks of base
metal for 12-14 hours, depending
on the orchids' size and form. This
preserves the flower's real shape
and gives the flower strength. After
optimum strength is reached, jewelry
accessories are soldered onto the
plated pieces and then undergo further
electroplating for additional strength,
some with a final plating of 24K
collector's stamps with
motives of orchids are available
together with an extensive collection
of postcards of native orchids,
which all have been taken in my
the visitors to my butterfly
garden, I also have different souvenirs.
Magnetic butterflies in different
shapes and sizes as well as a big
collection of self-adhesive stickers,
which are the big draw for children
of all ages
are some very attractive
brooches in different colours and
shapes of butterflies for sale and
framed butterflies, which are a
perfect remembrance to your vist

also have 'Miss Udorn Sunshine'
for sale, the only perfume in the
world that uses orchids as raw material.
This perfume is a very special gift
