Orchid Plant – Phalaenopsis

Orchidaceae
Phalaenopsis

Orchid plants are one of the largest plant species in the world with over 20,000 different varieties. They are long-lived, and with proper care, bloom again and again for many years. The flowers of an orchid plant may be yellow, white, pink, lavender, spotted, or striped. These plants are a beautiful, inexpensive replacement for a cut flower arrangement or just an added delight for any room in your home or office. The Phalaenopsis or Moth Orchid is one of the best and most available varieties. The flowers of a Phalaenopsis plant open off  long arching spikes and often last 2-3 months.
