Orchids are epiphytic in their native habitat, growing on trees and rock formations, instead of directly in the ground. Species from the orchid family (Orchidaceae) can be found in almost every habitat around the world.
The popular Phalaenopsis orchid is one of the easiest varieties of orchids to grow as a houseplant, this orchid with leafy stems and long-lasting flowers does best a bright, warm, humid spot. Indoors, the Phalaenopsis will typically bloom about once a year, for up to three months. After a blooming cycle, the flowers will wilt and fall off. When this happens, don’t worry, your orchid is not dead, it’s just storing up energy to re-bloom again next season.
