Vibrant yellow blooms have deep burgundy spots on the petals and lip. Like all Phalaenopsis, it’s a reliable bloomer for even beginning orchid growers. Flowering spikes often have 7-9 flowers each and the long-lasting blooms hold on the plant for 2-3 months. Phalaenopsis Benedict Masson tends to bloom during the spring and summer seasons. We ship blooming size plants not necessarily in spike. Formerly known as Didier Beaulitt.

Tips for Success:
• Grow in an east or west window or under lights.
• Avoid growing areas with hot noon day sun.
• Bring the moss to near dryness between waterings,
then thoroughly saturate the moss (it’s better to under
water a little than over water).
• To bring into flower, subject the plant to temperatures in
the high to mid 50’s at night for a period of four weeks.
This is most easily done in the fall.
• Fertilize only lightly and then only during the active
growing season which is usually spring to fall.
• For long term growth, use a clay pot. Clay will ensure a
quicker drying time for the moss and in turn will keep
the roots healthy.
