 GENERAL INFORMATION

  • A beautiful Phalaenopsis Orchid Centerpiece for any occasion.
  • Perfect to highlight and brighten up your indoor area.
  • Phalaenopsis which is called the beginner's orchid is known for its ability to withstand different conditions due to its toughness.
  • It is a popular type of orchid flower in Singapore that is easy to care for.
  • So if you are planning to have a houseplant that will not give you stress then you can consider taking care of Phalaenopsis.
  • They are easily grown in the home and stay in bloom for a very long time.
  • A mature one will be in bloom much of the year with graceful inflorescences loaded with good-sized blooms.
  • They do very well as houseplants and will grow and flower in a moderately bright windowsill.

 SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Instead of regular soil, they need potting material that mimics a host tree or comes from a tree, such as ground fir tree bark, redwood bark chips, or Monterey pine bark chips.
  • You can also buy a commercial potting mix that is made special for orchids.
  • No matter the potting media you use, make sure there is plenty of air circulation for the rooting system.

 FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • During the growing season, fertilize with a weak orchid fertilizer weekly.
  • Cut fertilizer back to once a month during the winter and flowering season.
  • Some growers like to give the plant a boost of blooming fertilizer in September or October to provoke a flower spike.

 LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Good light is required for phalaenopsis but they can experience absolutely no direct sunlight, or the leaves will scorch.
  • Rotate the plant from time to time to keep growth equal.
  • It can tolerate low light and will thrive in an east window, or a shaded southerly or westerly exposure.
  • Also, they will do well under common grow lights positioned about a foot from the plant.
  • A well-grown plant will have darker green leaves on top and streaks of red or burgundy on the undersides.

 WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Phalaenopsis is a monopodial orchid, which means that it grows from a single stem.
  • It does not have the large water-storing pseudobulbs found on sympodial orchids, although its leaves can store some water.
  • Thus, this plant has a lower tolerance for drought.
  • During the growing season, water the plant weekly or whenever its exposed roots turn silvery white.
  • Water them in the morning and try to keep the potting media slightly damp.
  • During the flowering season, you can cut the water back to every other week.
  • Water should never be allowed to rest around the stem of the plant.
  • This will cause the new leaves to rot, and the plant will die.
