Phalaenopsis ‘Optifriend' with Pot
🚚 Free UK shipping on orders over £60 🪴
An impressive premium moth orchid with a minimum of two stems. The host of colourful flowers are long-lasting and, with very little care, the plant will continue to bud throughout the year.
Complete with a matching ceramic pot which has a water reservoir which will keep your orchid hydrated for longer. Your plant will be chosen as a lucky dip from the available selection.
We are pleased to offer these premium quality orchids, grown in the Netherlands by Opti-flor experts. These orchids are grown using carefully adapted temperatures to ensure they are optimised for our homes and offer long-lasting blooms.
Prefers bright, indirect light. Water when the roots are looking silvery in colour – this will be around every 10 days to two weeks, depending on the time of year and the temperature in your home. Dunk and hold the plastic nursery pot into tepid water to allow the roots to get a good soak for around 10 minutes. Feed with orchid solution in spring/summer. Keep the leaves clean of dust.
Once the flowers have faded, cut the flowering stalk back to just above the second node (joint) visible beneath the spent flowers. A new flowering side shoot may develop.
If a plant is large and healthy but does not produce flowers in a reasonable time, then reduce the temperature by 5°C for four weeks, and a flower spike will usually develop.
Pot Size: 7cm diameter
Height: approx. 20cm+
