The Phaely represents love, luxury, beauty and strength. This elegant plant makes a gorgeous addition to any home or office, with its long stems, dainty wing-like flowers and deep green foliage. Due to their long-lasting nature, Phalaenopsis Orchids are a very popular present.
We know you’re going to love your Phalaenopsis Orchids, but don’t be an overbearing plant parent! Orchid roots like to be watered, but then left to almost dry out before you water them again. This is because the roots are very susceptible to rot if they’re kept constantly moist. A good way to tell when it’s time to water your orchid is by sticking your finger into the pot. If it feels wet, don’t water yet! You can also try lifting the pot to feel how heavy it is. When the pot is dry it will feel very light, and it might be time to give your orchid a drink. On average, Phalaenopsis Orchids will only need watering around once a week, or perhaps a little more often in the hot summer months.
Phalaenopsis Orchids are indoor plants – they love warm temperatures, between 24°C and 29°C. If you like to keep your house warm, you’ll make an excellent orchid owner! However, orchids are just like people, we may love the heat, but sunburn isn’t healthy! Keep your plant out of direct sunlight to avoid the burn.
