Introduction to Phalaenopsis Orchid
Phalaenopsis originate from the jungles of Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. Their roots are quite thick and often they climb out of the pots, and the green point at the ends signifies that the root is actively grow-ing. Unlike most of the orchid, mature plants usually carry only four to five pair of leaves. The flowers of some species are large and often resemble the shape of moths which is why the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.
History and Foreword
Waltex Biotec Sdn Bhd was formed in February 27, 2006 by its’ founder, Steven S.H. Cheong, after six (6) successful years of researching, cultivating and propagating Phalaenopsis. A hobbyist, who first dipped his fingers in planting Dendrobiums, Vandas and Phalaenopsis back in 1970s, Steven started his collection of moth orchids in his own backyard few years ago. His passion for the beautiful but highly elusive Phalaenopsis led to a thorough and extensive research of growing this prized orchid in the most challenging of environments. Steven traveled, on many occasions, to several countries including USA, Canada, Hawaii, Holland, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia and visited numerous orchid exhibitors and professional growers to gain a deeper understanding of this plant.
After seeing the huge potential of developing the hobby into business, six acres of agricultural land was acquired in Ulu Yam in 2006, a suburb just 40 minutes away from the heart of Kuala Lumpur and which is aptly named “World of Phalaenopsis”. Years of knowledge and experience were shared to this farm to successfully grow the Phalaenopsis on a larger scale.
With the opening of the 2nd farm located in Gohtong Jaya, Genting Highlands with a total growing area of 1.6 acres in January 2009, Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. has become the largest phalaenopsis grower in Malaysia. Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. aims to revolutionize the agriculture industry in Malaysia with both farms being opened to the public and tour groups where visitors are able to view and purchase the flowers.
To increase the audience awareness, the company has been aggressively marketing and advertising on the appropriate medias and attending exhibitions nationwide (click here for the latest exhibition venue). In addition, Waltex Biotec Sdn. Bhd. is part of the following associations:
Ipoh Orchid Society
Selangor & Kuala Lumpur Orchid Society
