Plant Families / Phalaenopsis- Moth Orchids
Phalaenopsis (Moth Orchids) is a large genus of usually epiphytic orchids (growing on trees). They are among the most popular cultivated orchids and thousands of hybrids have been made throughout the years. The plants are particularly attractive, with oval, fleshy leaves and some species are sweetly fragrant. The inflorescences range from short with few flowers to very branched floriferous stems. The flowers are generally long lasting, making moth orchids the most popular of orchid pot plants.
