The moth orchid, Phalaenopsis, is an epiphytic plant, meaning that in the wild it grows on the surface of other plants, rather than in the soil. Plants typically bear delightful, pink, white or purple flowers. Phalaenopsis should be grown in a special bark medium rather than compost, and requires a humid atmosphere and bright, filtered light to thrive. For best results, grow in light, humid kitchens and bathrooms.
