These particular varieties of Phalaenopsis are truly a gem! They are compact in size, bloom again and again and offer a brilliant array of colors. Each variety has its own characteristics and some stand out with a wonderful fragrance or rare color combinations. What makes these orchids extra special is that they stay nice and compact, take up little space and are therefore accessible for everyone to enjoy.
Remember those days when every unusual Phalaenopsis hybrid was considered a novelty? Well, these novelties now form a distinct group that is truly unique. Often they are hybrids of the Polychilos genus (a subgroup of Phalaenopsis), crossed with species of similar size, and this is lovingly done by growers like us. We are always looking for that one special compact Phalaenopsis variety to make them even better or to create new varieties, all because of their pleasing growth and flowering. And guess what? There are orchid lovers worldwide who collect what we grow! They are so sought after because of their modest size and the beautiful, healthy flowers they produce.
These beautiful plants are primarily for hobbyists and orchid growers' markets. Like the "regular" Phalaenopsis, they are houseplants that bloom regularly and for long periods of time. They need a good dose of (indirect) light and weekly feeding (in the form of fertilizer), just like other Phalaenopsis. The beauty is that they are relatively easy to care for. What makes them different from standard Phalaenopsis is their size and flowery appearance. All in all, these extraordinary hybrids are an indispensable asset for any enthusiast, thanks to their enchanting display of color!
The flowers are often located gracefully beneath the leaves, and when you hang these varieties, you create a breathtaking feast of color! The flower stems grow no longer than 40 cm, and usually even shorter, and they stay close to the plant. This makes them perfect for windowsills and smaller spaces. As the plant ages, it grows more and more flower branches. And the best part? They often rebloom on the old stems, so the plant is almost always in full bloom.
These enchanting varieties are rare and an absolute must-have for anyone who loves beautiful orchids!
