Phalaenopsis (also called Moth Orchids due to their winged, broad petals) are elegant and long lasting. Perfect as a gift for any ocassion as gifts.
Roots of the phalaenopsis will rot if they are kept too wet, so it’s best to grow them in a bark mix that ensures good drainage. Healthy roots should be thick and creamy white with bright green tips. Sometimes roots can be seen on the surface of the mix or growing over the side of the pot. This is quite natural.
Because moth orchids come from tropical areas, they enjoy plenty of humidity. It’s helpful to mist spray the leaves with water a couple of times a week or to have the pot sitting on pebbles in a saucer. A layer of water at the base of the pebbles will evaporate to increase the humidity level around the plant.
Phalaenopsis orchids can flower a couple of times a year, often from the same flowering stem. After the flowers have finished, it’s wise to leave the flowering stem alone to see if it develops new shoots. If, eventually, part of the stem dies back, the dead section can then be trimmed off.
