The Piet Vijverberg Nursery, producer of this Phalaenopsis and Dracaena, devised ‘Star Quality…By5’ as the brand name for these products to emphasis their excellence. Although the name also alludes to the producer’s family name, which is VIJVerberg (VIJF meaning ‘five’ in Dutch), it was chosen mainly in reference to the 5-star quality of the nursery’s products.
5 Stars – and it shows!
Tips from the grower
“The more multi-coloured a Dracaena’s leaf pattern, the more light it will require. Just don’t place it in bright, direct sunlight.“
“Afraid you’ll give your orchid too much water? A useful tip: Give the plant three ice cubes per week. Because the ice will melt slowly, the Phalaenopsis can easily absorb this small amount of water a little at a time.“
“Phalaenopsis has its roots in the tropical rainforest, so you can well imagine that it doesn’t appreciate the cold. Before it leaves the greenhouse to go to its retail destination, we put it in a sleeve to protect it from getting a chill. If your orchid drops its buds, this is probably a sign that its location is too cool.”
“The Dracaena really doesn’t mind if you forget to water it on occasion. This houseplant stores moisture in its stem, so it can tolerate a little forgetfulness now and then.”
