Product Information

Everyone loves a 'Moth orchid' - whether their taste is traditional or modern and trendy, as they fit in with every colour and style effortlessly.

Named because of the way that the flowers resemble moths, these orchids were once only affordable to wealthy families. Now however, due to modern propagation methods, everyone can enjoy the beauty of this wonderful houseplant.

Luxurious flowers are produced by the basal rosette of leaves, rising on succulent stems to around 50-60cm, and will last for weeks.

This versatility makes them the perfect Christmas Plant Gift, as the lucky recipient will not only get 6-7 weeks of flower enjoyment (way more than a bouquet), but also, with a little care, they'll flower again in future as well.

We will select and send an orchid with open blooms and plenty of buds remaining (colour of the orchid will be selected at random).

Top Tips

Keep your moth orchid in its see-through pot, do not be tempted to pot them into an opaque container. The roots will go green and this encourages beneficial flora to colonise and improve their growth.

Care Information

  • Keep the compost moist during the warmer months, and reduce this in the winter, only watering occasionally.
  • When watering, stand the clear pot in a tray of water so they can soak up as much as they like for an hour or two. Afterwards, let the excess water drain away completely.
  • It is always best to give them a good soak when they get quite dry, rather than watering little and often. Their preference is for soft, tepid water - rainwater is ideal.
  • Orchids love humidity, so a light kitchen or bathroom is ideal, as long as they are kept out of direct sun and avoid large changes in temperature.
  • Mist the leaves with water occasionally, especially if they are in a heated room.
  • Don't worry if the roots grow outside the pot, these aerial roots absorb water from the air. Also, moth orchids prefer being tight in their pots - only repot when growth starts to suffer.
  • You can encourage a second flush of flowers to form if you trim back the stem to just above the first node immediately after they have finished flowering.
