About Phalaenopsis Orchid

Phalaenopsis Orchid (Moth Orchid)

This beautiful tropical Phalaenopsis orchid is now Europe's number one selling indoor plant and is fast becoming New Zealands favourite.  Orchids are much easier to look after than most people think. The moth orchid is available in a range of colours from yellow, white and pink and when looked after properly it will bloom for many months in the right position.

Care Advice

Cut the spike just above the first strong bud (approx 20 cm above the pot) when flowering has finished. Your orchid will usually flower again within 6 to 8 months.

Indoors only in a high light area but not in direct sunlight.

Water / Fertiliser

Water weekly in summer; fortnightly in winter. Add the fertiliser to the water and pour the water into the pot until it comes out the bottom. Do not allow your moth orchid to sit in water. Use fertiliser at slightly lower rates than indicated on the instructions.
