Phalaenopsis Orchids

Phalaenopsis Orchids

Description: Moth orchids (Phalaenopsis spp) are beautiful and very popular orchids that are native to forests in tropical Asia. Often given as gifts, they have stunning and long-lasting flowers that come in a wide range of gorgeous colours.

Light: Good light is required for phalaenopsis but they can experience absolutely no direct sunlight, or the leaves will scorch. Inside in low light areas such as bathrooms is a perfect spot for them

Water: During the growing season, water the plant weekly or whenever its exposed roots turn silvery white. Water them in the morning and don’t water again till dry. During the flowering season, you can water a little more, keep water out of thew crown of the orchid. You can use a feed such as Strike Back for Orchids if you would like to feed them, we suggest springtime to feed them. In regards to repotting we are more than happy to assist you when the time comes. Do not attempt to repot while the orchid is flowering.
