Plant Features

The Violet Phalaenopsis Orchid is a stunning and elegant flowering plant, beloved for its vibrant violet blossoms that add a touch of exotic beauty to any setting. These orchids are characterized by their symmetrical flowers, each with a central labellum often marked with unique patterns. The blooms gracefully arch on long stems, contrasting beautifully against the plant's broad, glossy green leaves. Phalaenopsis, commonly known as "Moth Orchids," are among the most popular orchids in the trade, owing to their long-lasting flowers and relatively straightforward care.

For troubleshooting, wilting or droooping 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 is often a sign of overwatering or poor drainage. Allow the growing medium to dry out slightly between waterings. Black or mushy roots indicate overwatering and poor drainage. 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.
