The Phalaenopsis extra mix 10/tray, better known as the Butterfly Orchid, has its origin in the moist, tropical areas of Asia, Australia and the Pacific Ocean. This exotic plant belongs to the Orchidaceae family and is one of the most popular and cultivated types amongst all orchids, thanks to its striking beauty and relative ease of growth.
Phalaenopsis extra mix 10/tray has a long flowering period and offers a wide variety of colours, making this plant a fun addition to any interior. The plant grows upwards with an upright stem, upon which multiple flowers bloom. These flowers can vary in size and colour, depending on the specific variety of the plant. Finally, the Butterfly Orchid has wide, glossy leaves that provide an attractive contrast with the delicate flowers.
The Phalaenopsis extra mix 10/tray has specific care requirements which must be met for optimal growth. This orchid likes a light spot, but direct sunlight should be avoided to prevent burning of the delicate leaves. In addition, the plant thrives best in a moist environment and in well-drained soil. Watering should be done sparingly: it is better to keep the plant a bit too dry than too wet. To help the plant bloom, a special orchid fertiliser can be applied every two weeks during the growth season.
