Phalaenopsis Yellow Orchid

Phalaenopsis are thick-leaved plants with elegant, arching sprays of blooms that can be seen in so many design magazines and sitting on coffee tables. There are about 60 true species of phalaenopsis; they are native to tropical Asian countries. These plants have been extensively hybridized, and there are thousands of phalaenopsis hybrids, ranging from the stark, classic white hybrid (often called a moth orchid) to jewel-like miniatures with clouds of yellow and candy pink blooms.

Phalaenopsis do not like direct sunlight and will scorch.  A well-grown phalaenopsis will have darker green leaves on top and streaks of red or burgundy on the undersides.

Suspended Rose Singapore Flower

Roses are a popular crop for both domestic and commercial cut flowers. Generally they are harvested and cut when in bud, and held in refrigerated conditions until ready for display at their point of sale.

In temperate climates, cut roses are often grown in glasshouses, and in warmer countries they may also be grown under cover in order to ensure that the flowers are not damaged by weather and that pests and disease control can be carried out effectively. Significant quantities are grown in some tropical countries, and these are shipped by air to markets across the world.
