Color infused Etta leis must be ordered a week prior to shipping. Preparing the color infusion takes extra time.
We start with purple and white dendrobium orchids and infuse them with special coloring while on the stem. This is not a cheap dye and will not rub off on clothing. Choose from an infusion of blue, green, red or yellow. The colors blend well with the purple of the orchid blossom and are revealed in the white sections. Select your color in the drop down above to see each lei. Lei care for color infused Etta’s are the same as for any orchid lei. Just refrigerate in a bag after misting lightly with clean water.
They leis will last for 3 or 4 days after they arrive if kept cool.
