What other plant parents say
As long as it is taken care of, it grows pretty fast. I have yet to have an issue with it. I did have to move it to a bigger pot within the first two months of having it.
I’m struggling to keep mine alive right now, but honestly he is still kicking and really doesn’t want to go. I’m proud of him. I hope he blooms more flowers for me
Once you find the right spot for it, it blooms several times a year (at least for me).
Orchids thrive on neglect!!! Don’t overwater!! I water with an icecube!
She has never bloomed but she has beautiful green leaves???
Always blooms! Love the colors on them!

Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Phalaenopsis orchid in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Phalaenopsis orchid after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
