Not Great With Houseplants? 5 Reasons to Buy Phalaenopsis Orchids

June 12, 2020

Phalaenopsis orchids are the perfect plant if you love the look of fresh-cut flowers but hate having to throw them out when they die a few days later. And when it comes to taking care of potted houseplants, your track record is less than stellar.

Sound familiar?

What if we told you there’s a way to get flowers that bloom for months with minimal effort? Phalaenopsis orchids are a great alternative to both fresh cut flowers and houseplants. Here are five reasons why.

Phalaenopsis Orchids Are Low Maintenance

You don’t need a green thumb to keep an orchid thriving. Phals only need a small amount of water — just three ice cubes per week plus bright, but indirect light to grow happily.

You Won’t Forget To Water Them

When life gets so busy you can barely remember where you’re supposed to be next, watering your orchid can fall off your radar. That’s why we created watering reminders that come to you by text or email. You’ll never have to worry about remembering your watering schedule again.

Phalaenopsis Orchids Complement Any Decor

The dramatic structure and colorful flair allows them to elevate the elegance of any space they inhabit. They have the advantage of appearing sophisticated and impressive, while being one of the simplest houseplants to keep in your home.

They Last A Long Time

Orchid blooms can last for more than three months and, with proper care, can rebloom for years to come. Unlike cut flowers that start to wilt after a few days or other flowering plants with such a short blooming cycle that if you blink, you miss it, Phalaenopsis orchid blooms can be enjoyed for a full season.

Phalaenopsis Orchids Are Easy to Find

You won’t have to go to a specialized greenhouse or flower shop to find the Phalaenopsis orchid of your dreams. These beautiful plants are available in numerous retail stores and boutiques around the country. In fact, you can even get Phals without leaving your house —they’re available online.

If you’re someone who is hesitant about your ability to care for a houseplant, give a Phalaenopsis orchid a try. Buy one online today or at a store near you.
