The Phalaenopsis multiflora is one of the few plants that purifies the air at night. This is because it is a CAM plant that, unlike all other green plants, absorbs CO2 at night to grow. This is because at night its stomata are open, because during the day the humidity is often too low and so its stomata are closed. We completely imitate this in our nursery. Because we do not use gas for heating and do this with a heat pump, we save 40% on our energy consumption. This heat pump ensures that we store the heat in the ground in the summer for cooling purposes and bring it up again in the winter for heating. Place the plant in a light spot, but not in direct sunlight. Not in a draft or above a heater. Temperature between 15 and 25 degrees. Not near fruit. This produces ripening gases, which causes the flowers to wilt more quickly. Immerse the plant in lukewarm (preferably) rainwater, let it soak for 10 minutes and then let it drain well. The orchid can then go without water for 14 days. Make sure there is no water in the decorative pot, because the Phalaenopsis does not like wet feet. A little orchid food once a month. This plant comes with the Fair Flora label. A Fair Flora plant is an honest and sustainable plant. The environmental impact has been calculated and is actively being improved. In addition, the CO2 emissions are compensated and the nursery is actively involved in CSR. Through Fair Flora, the grower receives a fair price for the product, so that further sustainability is made possible. In addition, part of every product sold goes to one of Fair Flora’s charities. I am Maurice van der Hoorn, grower and owner of van der Hoorn Orchids in Ter Aar, in the middle of the green heart. I grow Phalaenopsis multiflora, one of the most famous orchid families. We do this in a special nursery that is completely sustainable. Heating and cooling in the greenhouses is done by using groundwater that is located at a depth between eighty and one hundred meters in the ground.
