Phalaenopsis are a popular, stylish, and easy to care for houseplant. They produce unusual and long-lasting flowers in abundance, alongside evergreen foliage. Orchids are epiphytic plants, meaning that in the wild they grow on the surface of another plant, rather than in the ground. In the home, they prefer to be grown in loose, airy bark chippings, in a clear plastic pot. When flowering has finished, repot your plant, or bring it in to us and we can re-pot it for you (charges apply)
