Phalaenopsis Orchid (Various Colors)

  • Phalaenopsis Orchid 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.
  • Suitable for flower delivery in Singapore for any occasion.
  • So if you are planning to have a houseplant that will not give you stress then you can consider taking care of Phalaenopsis Orchid.
  • The Phalaenopsis or ‘Moth Orchid’ is the most common orchid due to its ease of production and the availability of blooming plants year-round.
  • 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.
  • From pure whites to unusual spotted harlequins, Phalaenopsis are sure to please.
  • Unlike many other orchids, Phalaenopsis can be repotted anytime, though it is usually best to do so when not in bloom.
  • The culture of Phalaenopsis orchids involves windowsill light and consistent moisture.
  • They do very well as houseplants and will grow and flower in a moderately bright windowsill.
  • Each year a Phalaenopsis will grow one or two new leaves.
  • Once the growth phase is complete, usually in the fall, a bloom spike will emerge from the stem beneath the second or third leaf from the top.
SOIL
  • 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.
  • Most bark potting media will work.
  • Also, make sure there is some perlite, sphagnum moss, charcoal, or coconut husk chips mixed in to help with water retention.
  • 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.
  • They are accustomed to breezes and wind and don’t do well without it.
FERTILIZER
  • During the growing season, fertilize with a weak orchid fertilizer weekly (“weakly weekly,” as the growers say).
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
