Plant Features

The Pink Veined Phalaenopsis Orchid is an exquisite and elegant houseplant, highly sought after for its stunning blooms. This orchid variety features large, delicate petals predominantly in shades of pink, adorned with distinctive darker pink or purple veins, creating a captivating visual effect. The blooms gracefully arch on long stems, contrasting beautifully with the plant's broad, glossy green leaves. Phalaenopsis Orchids, often referred to as "Moth Orchids," are one of the more popular and easier-to-care-for orchid varieties, making them a great choice for beginners.

When troubleshooting, drooping or yellowing leaves is often a sign of overwatering. Allow the orchid's growing medium to dry slightly between waterings. Wilting flowers or buds dropping can be caused by sudden temperature changes, drought, or overwatering. Keep the orchid in a stable environment and maintain consistent watering. Black or mushy roots indicate overwatering and poor drainage. Ensure the pot has proper drainage and the roots are not sitting in water. If your orchid isn't blooming, it might need more light. Place it in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. Also, a drop in night temperature can help initiate blooming.
