We can’t help but say that a beautiful spring season starts with a beautiful flower, and you’re looking at it right now.

The exotic phalaenopsis orchid, also known as the “moth orchid,” is native to tropical Asian and Australian regions. Its majestuous purple hues will become your must-haves for the seasons coming up.

Light: Good lighting is required to make phalaenopsis bloom the right way. However, direct sunlight will discolor and dry the leaves. During the winter, you can place the orchid close to a window that receives some direct light occasionally. Important tip: move and rotate your purple beauty from time to time to keep its growth even.

Watering: We recommend watering your orchid weekly or whenever you notice its roots turn silvery or very white during the growing season. Water your bloom for approximately 10 minutes for the best absorption results. As a final step, make sure your orchid has completely drained before putting it back in the window spot. It’s important to remember that you can cut the watering time to every other week during the flowering season.

Temperature: This orchid can adapt to average house temperatures ranging from 65-75 F. Food: Phalaenopsis do best when fertilized every third or fourth week during the growing season (summer). Do not feed your orchid during fall, winter, and spring (flowering season) because too much fertilizer will result in no blooms.
