Phalaenopsis Orchid Plant Care
Author: admin1 Comment
You will find Phalaenopsis everywhere that orchids are sold. The flat-faced flowers are born on arching stems, each bloom lasting for about a month.
The hybrids that are available are easy to grow, and with proper care will flower intermittently all year round. Popularly known as the Moth Orchid, it needs a bright but sunless spot with a minimum winter temperature of 64 degrees F (18 degrees C); Phalaenopsis does not enjoy the cool nights favored by some other types. It will grow quite happily with day temperatures as high as 82 degrees F (28 degrees C), but give it a rest period by putting it in a room with a lower temperature than ites usual home for a few weeks in autun. Do not cut off the roots growing outside the pot.
