    If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, then this could be just the ticket. It's a gorgeous white-flowering phalaenopsis orchid, which is supplied with two flowering stems, in an upside-down, white recycled plastic planter, that's ready to hang with the 30cm long hanging wire. Cleverly designed, and using plastic mesh to keep the plant (and compost) secure, the inbuilt reservoir, which releases water to the plant also makes watering easy and mess-free.

  • Home care: When the indicator on the base (top) of the pot shows that the reservoir is empty, refill it - ideally using soft, tepid water. These plants love humidity, so a bright kitchen or bathroom would be ideal, and mist the leaves with water occasionally, especially if they are in a heated room. They usually only send up flower spikes once a year, however you may encourage a second flush of flowers to form more quickly if you trim back the stem to just above the first node immediately after they have finished flowering. They prefer even temperatures, so try not to have big drops at night time.
