Whatever the occasion or mood, it’s likely there’s a color of orchid to express it. Orchids bloom in every color—from deep fuchsia to white to green—except for one: black! And although they’re rare, there are even true blue orchids, and ones that bloom in dual color combos like lavender and pink or green and yellow. That’s just one of many reasons why orchids are so desirable as stand-alone centerpieces or as exotic additions to other arrangements.
In traditional Chinese medicine, orchids were used to help cure coughs and lung illnesses. In ancient Greece, orchids were associated with virility. The Aztecs were known to drink a mixture of vanilla orchid flowers and chocolate to give them strength. And believe it or not, Victorians were so mystified by the orchid’s irresistible beauty that they collected and displayed them like treasures.
The Phalaenopsis or ‘Moth Orchid’ is the most common and recognized orchid in New York. Originally from tropical parts of Asia and Australia, where they grow on tree trunks usually near brooks or rivers. Phalaenopsis orchids love a bright well lit position but without direct sunlight. Air flow is very important for orchid's well-being. They like well ventilated space but not being close to heaters or air conditioners. Some people believe in few ice cubes a week, others in 20/25 weekly jets of water directly on the roots. We believe in complete immersing the roots in water for 5 seconds and then pouring all the water our ( imitating tropical shower). Feeding generally during flowering.
Well maintained phalaenopsis orchids flowers 2-3 times a year.
