Comments: High quality flowers are available in the entire colour spectrum, except true blue. The most widely grown orchid for use as a houseplant. The aerial roots can photosynthesise, producing a green colour near the tips from chlorophyl production. While often recommended by plant tags, placing a cube of ice is not a good idea for watering orchids, as these plants are native to areas where ice is not present and the cold temperate could damage the plant. 

Toxicity: Safe.
