Phalaenopsis orchids, or phalos for short, are also known as moth orchids. It is one of the most common orchids and among the easiest to grow. Its commonly found in white or purple, but also available in other colors.
Dendrobium orchids are also a common orchid. You may recognize them from Thai restaurants or at 5 star restaurants that adorn dinner plates with them.

With clean water, they have been know to last well over a month. They are so extraordinary, that many times all you need is one simple cymbidium in a vase.
Oncidiums are sometimes known as the “yellow dancing ladies.” Though yellow are the most common, they come in a large variety of colors due to hybrid breeding. They are a delicate looking bloom with several on a stem and are often used in flower arrangements.
The cattleya is often referred to as the corsage orchid. In older days, they were commonly used in corsages to create an oversized spectacle. We generally have these large blooms in stock for mother’s day corsage pieces.
How about a quick tip on caring for orchids. We apply the ice cube method when watering our potted orchids. Three ice cubes (about ¼ cup of water) once a week place inside the orchid pot is usually the perfect amount of water for the orchids. By using ice cubes, the water is slowly released to the orchid roots to allow maximum absorption. For more information on watering orchids, check out our orchid FAQ article.
