Phalaenopsis orchids

indoor-plant-week-orchidsPhalaenopsis orchids are sometimes referred to as “moth” orchids. The word “Phalaenopsis” comes from the Latin word “phal,” which translates to “moth.” Carl Ludwig Blume, who gave Phalaenopsis orchids their name, supposedly chose it due to the moth resemblance.

Phalaenopsis orchids are great for first-time plant parents. They’re low-maintenance, have long-lasting blooms, don’t require tons of light, and they add a brilliant pop of color to any room. When properly maintained, orchids will continue to rebloom for years to come.

Another great choice for novice plant owners, anthuriums are low-maintenance and they rebloom all year. Their heart-shaped leaves symbolize hospitality, making them a great gift for party hosts.

Practitioners of feng shui credit the money tree plant with creating positive energy in living spaces, making it the perfect addition to a home office or family room. Another low-maintenance plant, the money tree will continue to grow all year long, and some have been known to reach a height of 6 feet.
