Phalaenopsis orchids are some if the easiest orchids to grow and their flowers last a long time! Moreover their flower spikes can be trained into various shapes, so the display can be even more attractive! One if my favorites is the cascade display, learn more here https://youtu.be/1_GQdRbKCMU

Flower spikes grow towards the light source, so a good technique is to arrange the orchid in regards to the light as the spike grows, or use a lamp to shape the spike.

Flower stakes are very useful too, especially if we don’t use a lamp, or the orchid has heavy flowers.
