Phalaeonopsis are sometimes called 'moth orchids', since a series of them on a plant look a little bit like a group of moths in flight. They come from Southeast Asia, the Philippines and Australia. They are generally epiphytes (live in trees), often in the shade under the canopy in moist jungle areas. They are probably the easiest orchids to grow at home. They like low light (such as an east window), warm temperatures (75-85 degrees), and keeping the potting mixture slightly moist.
