A beautiful, white, single-spike phalaeonopsis orchid.
(A double spike orchid shown here)
The generic name, phalaeonopsis orchid, derives from Greek and is probably a reference to a group of large moths. The flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, these orchids are sometimes called moth orchids.
Most are shade plants. If very healthy, a phalaenopsis plant can have up to ten or more leaves.
They bloom in their full glory for several weeks.
When kept in the home, the flowers may last two to three months.
We use a variety of pots to complement each orchid.
