Plant Features

The Pure White Phalaenopsis Orchid, often referred to as the "Moth Orchid," is celebrated for its elegant and pristine white blooms that convey a sense of sophistication and tranquility. This orchid variety is distinguished by its arching branches of large, flat, white flowers, which can last for several months. The glossy, broad green leaves at the base of the plant add to its aesthetic appeal. Phalaenopsis Orchids are among the most popular orchids for indoor cultivation due to their beauty and relatively straightforward care requirements.

When troubleshooting, wilting or drooping flowers could indicate underwatering, overwatering, or a sudden change in temperature. Ensure the plant is watered properly and kept in a stable environment. Yellowing leaves are often a sign of overwatering or poor drainage. Allow the growing medium to dry out slightly between waterings. Healthy roots should be firm and green. If they are brown and mushy, it’s a sign of overwatering. Ensure good drainage and proper watering practices. Insufficient light is a common reason for an orchid not blooming. Place it in a location with bright, indirect light.
