Moth Orchid

Phalaenopsis

£22.00
Moth Orchids aka phalaenopsis, require so little maintenance, despite their beautiful appearance! They provide super long-lasting blooms year round, and evergreen foliage. This species of orchid is native to South-East Asia, the Philippines and Australia. In the wild Phalaenopsis loves to grow on trees, making them epiphytic plants.


The delicate orchid blooms often last for 3 months+ and can appear any time of year, flower colours range from white to cream, yellow, pink and violet. They will rebloom many times a year, given lots of bright, indirect light, and a drench-and-drain watering routine which allows them to completely dry out in between baths.

Flower colours can vary.

How to care for your Moth Orchid

Native habitat

This species of orchid is native to South-East Asia, the Philippines and Australia. In the wild Phalaenopsis loves to grow on trees, making them epiphytic plants.

Light and position in the home

To keep your orchid happy, provide good light levels over winter, this will encourage flowering. An east or west-facing window is ideal. Come summer, move to a shady spot to protect from direct light.

Watering

Water regularly throughout the growing season (spring and summer). Watering can be reduced slightly during winter. Ensure to keep the foliage dry when doing so. Avoid letting the roots dry out completely, but never let the plant sit in water. A light misting in summer is also beneficial.
