Plant Features
The Lavender Splash Phalaenopsis Orchid is a captivating variety of the popular Phalaenopsis, or Moth Orchid. It is distinguished by its exquisite flowers, which display a beautiful blend of soft lavender hues, often with splashes of deeper lavender or purple and a contrasting center. The blooms are large, showy, and can last for several months. The plant's leaves are broad, glossy, and a deep green, forming an attractive rosette at the base.

The most common issue is overwatering, which can lead to root rot. It's vital to let the potting medium dry slightly between waterings. Signs of overwatering include yellowing leaves and a mushy base. Underwatering, evident by wrinkled leaves, is less common but should be corrected by consistent watering. Other problems encountered while growing Lavender Splash Phalaenopsis Orchids is insufficient light can result in poor flowering. These orchids prefer bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight, especially during hot afternoons, can scorch the leaves. Avoid sudden temperature changes as they can stress the plant, leading to bud drop. A consistent and moderate temperature is ideal. Low humidity can cause bud drop or desiccation of the leaves. In dry environments, consider increasing humidity levels. Pests and Diseases: Be vigilant for pests like aphids or scale insects. Treat any infestations with appropriate insecticides or natural solutions.
