    By pure coincidence I received your summer promotion email about an hour after hearing that my daughter had passed her degree with first class honours. Your beautiful flowers are perfect for a celebration. Dianne R

Commonly referred to as the "moth orchid", Phalaenopsis are one of the longest blooming orchid genera producing flowers that last from 2 to 6 months before dropping. Phalaenopsis have also been known to bloom 2 to 3 times per year once they have reached a mature size. After it has flowered the first time, cut the stem just below the node where the first flower bloomed. From the top node a new flower stem should emerge within 2 months. If there is no response or the flower spike turns brown, cut it off near the base of the plant where it emerged. Who knows, once you've mastered one orchid, there are many more challenging varieties to come. See facts about Orchids for more information or for Orchid Care Guide.

Orchids are beautiful, exotic flowers which - with the right care - can last many years. We offer flower delivery including orchids around the UK and Europe
