  •   Hailing from the tropical regions of Asia and Australia, Yellow Phalaenopsis Orchid graces indoor spaces with its exotic charm. Renowned as Moth Orchids, these plants stand out for their elegant and intricate blooms, resembling delicate moths in flight. The captivating allure of these flowers adds a touch of elegance to any setting.

    Delicate flower stalks emerge gracefully from smooth, green leaves, bearing multiple buds that would last a month or more. This plant also has arching branches that elegantly showcase its delicate flowers. This Yellow Phalaenopsis Orchid has yellow flowers with soft yellow petals and purple centers.

     The stems of Phalaenopsis Orchids contribute to their overall aesthetic, showcasing an arching form that creates a sense of movement and elegance. Emerging from leaf joints, these stems enhance the orchid's unique and captivating appearance.

    Phalaenopsis are "monopodial" orchids, indicating that they grow from a single stem. Unlike sympodial (or branching) orchids with large water-storing pseudobulbs, Phalaenopsis orchids lack these structures and hence need to be watered more regularly.

    This listing is for a Yellow Phalaenopsis Orchid plant with a single flower spike.

  • Place your orchid in bright, indirect sunlight, avoiding direct sunlight to prevent potential scorching of delicate petals. Periodically turn your orchid to ensure uniform growth. Adequate lighting will yield light green leaves. Insufficient light leads to dark green leaves, while excessive light can cause a pink or reddish hue along the leaf margins, ultimately turning yellow.

     Maintain a comfortable temperature range between 65-75°F during the day and slightly cooler at night (around 55°F), avoiding sudden temperature changes.

    Water the orchid when the top inch of the potting mix feels dry, ensuring thorough watering and avoiding waterlogging.

    Use a well-draining ready-made orchid potting mix or create your mix with orchid bark, sphagnum moss, perlite, and charcoal to prevent water accumulation around the roots.

     Feed the orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer during the growing season, following package instructions for dilution and frequency. Reduce fertilization during the dormant period.

    Trim spent flowers and yellowing leaves with sterile scissors, being cautious not to damage healthy parts of the plant.

    While these orchids are generally considered non-toxic, exercise caution to prevent ingestion by humans and pets.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
