Potted Phalaenopsis Orchids

Flowers for birthday

The Greek term "Phalaenopsis" translates to "resembling a moth." In fact, you may recognize these elegant Phalaenopsis by their more common name, Moth Orchids. Their beauty and longevity make them among the most popular household potted Orchids, and their easy-to-care-for nature makes them an ideal choice for any Orchid enthusiast.

Potted Phalaenopsis Orchids are delivered with 2-3 flowers in bloom; basic care instructions provided, a perfect Mother's Day gift.

Flower Care: 

Because they're living plants, the care required for our Potted Orchids is quite different from what's required for our cut flowers. Surprisingly, though, these distinctive flowers require care that's quite different from that required by most potted plants. Luckily, it's easier. Orchids are extremely difficult plants to kill, but you'll still want to follow these care instructions and keep your plant as healthy as possible.


Orchids don't need to be watered as frequently as other potted plants, so be careful of over-watering. Each time you water the plant, remove it from the clay pot (or basket), and water it thoroughly in the sink, fully soaking the potting mix. Wait until the surface is dry before watering again; this can take as long as eight days.


Orchids thrive in moderate-to-warm temperatures. Ideally, the daytime temperature should be between 70 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, while the nighttime temperature should be cooler, between 55 and 65 degrees. The plant can tolerate warmer temperatures, as long as it's in a humid environment, with plenty of air movement.


Provide as much light as possible without exposing your Orchid to direct sunlight.
