With more than 60 species, Phalaenopsis orchids have been widely used in hybridisation and are now probably one of the most widely grown orchids in the world as they are being increasingly sold as house plants. Orchids in this genus are native to India, Taiwan, China, Southeast Asia, New Guinea and Australia with the majority found in Indonesia and the Philippines.

Commonly known as Moth orchids, they are easily grown in the home and stay in bloom for a long time. A mature Phalaenopsis will be in bloom for much of the year with graceful inflorescences loaded with exotic and pleasantly-sized blooms. From pure whites to unusual spotted harlequins, Phalaenopsis are easy to care for and are sure to please.
