Phalaenopsis are among the most popular orchids in the trade, loved for their ability to flower under artificial conditions, and their ease of care. Species of this genus are epiphytic : they usually grow anchored to other plants and absorb their water and nutrients from the rain and humidity. They're not to be confused with terrestrial orchids from temperate regions, those grow in open soil.
Poinsettia - Euphorbia pulcherrima - is well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays. It derives its common English name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico who introduced the plant to the US in 1825.
