Phalaeonopsis Orchids

1. Phalaeonopsis orchids are still the rage in reception areas in the Boston Financial District to the technological highway of Route 128. With this new lighter purple color these long lasting flowers are an investment over expensive cut flowers.Cut flowers last days orchids can last months, lowering your interior plantscape costs.

2. Orchids come in many more colors and varieties than just phaleonopsis.

3. Dendrobiums are sympodial orchids develop pseudobulbs, which vary in length from a few centimetres (e.g. Dendrobium cuthbertsonii) to two metres long (e.g. Dendrobium pulchellum).
4. Most grow into long reedlike stems. Some appear densely covered with short white or black hairs .
In selected species, the short, ovate leaves grow alternately over the whole length of the stems, in others, the leaves are bunched towards the apex of the stem.
5. The flowers of the Oncidium genus come in shades of yellow, red, white and pink. The petals are often ruffled on the edges, as is the lip. The lip is enormous, partially blocking the small petals and sepals.
6. Some Oncidium orchids are very long : Oncidum altissimum and Oncidium baueri can grow to a height of 5 m, while Oncidum sarcodes can reach 3 m.
They are known as ‘spray orchids’ among some florists. They are very varied and are easily hybridised with Odontoglossum.

7. Cattleya is a genus of 113 species of orchids from Costa Rica to tropical South America. The genus was named in 1824 by John Lindley after Sir William Cattley, who received and successfully cultivated specimens of Cattleya labiata that were used as packing material in a shipment of other orchids. The genus is abbreviated C in trade journals.

8. They are widely known for their large, showy flowers, and were used extensively in hybridization for the cut-flower trade until quite recently. This genus and the numerous hybrids come close, through their beauty, to the idealized picture we have of the orchids. The flowers of the hybrids can vary in size from 5 cm to 15 cm or more. They occur in all colors except true blue and black.

At PDI we design with all of the above orchid varities.

    Discover the Health Benefits of Plants in an Office Space

    Live plants have a long-recognized health benefits that are both physical and mental. Plant systems clean the air by decreasing carbon dioxide from between 10-25%. Additionally, plants remove toxins such as benzene and formaldehyde from the air. This means that humans can breathe easier in offices and homes with plants. Live plants also add humidity. Furthermore, even a modest, medium-sized plant can make a dramatic difference in the quality of the air that a room’s occupants breathe. The health benefits of plants also include a demonstrable reduction (of up to 30%) of neuropsychological symbols—such as headaches and fatigue).

    Health Benefits in the Post-Pandemic World

    Since the year 2020 and beyond, office plants have represented an added health benefit in interior spaces: social distancing. Not only can plants minimize distracting chatter by means of dampening noise, they can also aid employee health by promoting social distancing. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant challenges for many American business with respect to returning to the workplace. Interior plantscapes, when artfully designed and strategically placed, can minimize the spread of contagions by serving as barriers. Finally, the psychological health benefits of plants are irrefutable; the presence of natural plants helps a room’s occupants to focus and decreases stress levels.
