Festive Phalaenopsis

 

phalaenopsis-butterfly-orchid

Undoubtedly the most elegant and exotic-looking houseplant with delicate flowers, but which are tough enough to last for months on end.


If you want to add a really festive touch to you home over the holidays, pick a Phalaenopsis orchid in full flower. The common name of this orchid of which there are many hybrids available in a wide range of colours, is moth orchid, which is very descriptive as the beautiful flowers arranged on a long flowering stem resemble exotic-looking moths hovering silently about.

 

As far as flowering houseplants go, a Phalaenopsis orchid is definitely the best value for money as it can flower for up to two months and more, and is easy to keep alive. The plants are readily available in nurseries, garden shops, supermarkets and florists and make the perfect, and always most valued, gift....
