The long-lasting blooms of Phalaenopsis Orchids will survive up to six months before falling off their stems! And under the right conditions, they can bloom several times a year at maturity. These orchids are fairly easy to grow and make excellent indoor plants for beginning orchid aficionados.

Known as the “moth orchid,” Phalaenopsis Orchids produce blooms in a wide array of colors. The sprays sit atop elegant, arching stalks, with thick leaves at the base of the plant.

While the best time to repot them is when they aren’t blooming, you can move Phalaenopsis Orchids to new pots any time during the year.

Growing Tips*

  • Grow best in low-light conditions. An eastern exposure is best. A sheer-curtained window facing south or west will also work.
  • Can grow in a variety of potting media, including pine bark, perlite, Hapu’u fern tree shreds, and sphagnum moss.
  • Water regularly to keep soil moist. Don’t let the soil dry out, but don’t over water. Make sure there is no standing water where the leaves meet the soil, or they will rot.
  • Use a balanced fertilizer specifically intended for orchids.
  • Prune the stem down to the level of the leaves after blooming. The blossoms will be larger and the stems stronger in the next blooming cycle.
  • Use Integrated Pest Management to identify pests and reduce damage.

With the right mix of water, light, and air flow, Phalaenopsis Orchids will add a touch of beauty to your home for a long time to come.
