        I'm guessing they left the stem a little longer and put a rock on top of it. The orchid blossoms will float. If you have a whole stem submerged they stay under

          After a TON of searching it looks like you use something called floral glue to glue the stem to the bottom of the vase. There are 2 versions one is waterproof one is not so be careful which one you buy.

          Here is a great article on how to DIY:

                No Problem :) Now if I can just figure out what kinds of flowers won't turn see through in the water. I really want to use orange lilies but I don't know if they have a "waxy" enough petal. If I can find a list somewhere I will post for everyone.
