Plant Features
The Apricot Phalaenopsis Orchid is a captivating and elegant variety of orchid, cherished for its stunning, apricot-colored blooms. Phalaenopsis, also known as "Moth Orchids," are among the most popular orchids due to their long-lasting flowers and relative ease of care. The Apricot Phalaenopsis typically features large, butterfly-shaped flowers with a gradient of warm tones ranging from pale yellow to deep apricot, often with delicate veining or speckling. The flowers grow on arching stems above a base of broad, green leaves.

Caring for an Apricot Phalaenopsis Orchid requires attention to several factors. Yellowing leaves or a lack of blooms can indicate insufficient light. Orchids prefer bright, indirect light; direct sunlight can burn the leaves. Overwatering is a common issue, leading to root rot – the roots should be allowed to dry out somewhat between waterings. Drooping leaves can be a sign of either overwatering or underwatering. Phalaenopsis Orchids thrive in high humidity and benefit from regular misting or placement on a pebble tray. They require less frequent fertilization than many other houseplants, with a balanced orchid fertilizer applied every few weeks during active growth.
