Phalaenopsis Simple, Yet Stunning
Phalaenopsis (fayl-eh-NOP-sis) or “moth orchids” are known for elegant, graceful stems and exceptionally long-lasting blooms resembling delicate moths. They’ve quickly become the most popular commercial orchids, and are available year-round in a stunning variety of alluring colors and natural speckled patterns. They’re delicate in appearance but thrive at home.
Sourced from breeders in the Netherlands, phalaenopsis arrive at Westerlay as babies, which are then nurtured for a year and a half in the greenhouse before flowering.
