Plant information

General

Not surprisingly, the Moth Orchid is the most famous ornamental flower in our country. The impressive blooms and great diversity of colours make the Orchid a perfect fit for any interior. If you take good care of your orchid, then this atmosphere-inducing plant will reward you with a long and frequent flowering periods.

Care

The Phalaenopsis Orchid doesn't require much water. You'll need to give it a dash of water only when the soil has become reasonably dry. Pour some water onto the soil every ten days, preferably in the morning so that the plant can better absorb the water. Did you know that we have special pots for orchids? These pots have a raised bottom to ensure optimal aeration and watering of the roots of the orchid.

Placing

The Phalaenopsis Orchid enjoys being in a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Has your Orchid become dull? Then it would be best to move it to a location that's a bit less bright. The elegant Moth Orchid does not like draughty spots or being placed near fruit. Take this into account in order to fully enjoy your plant.

Propogation

If the Moth Orchid has outgrown its pot, then it is time to repot it. In general, this happens every two to three years. Remove bad roots before transferring the orchid to a new pot.
