Known as the largest Phalaenopsis orchid producer in Malaysia, you can find them in two locations: the first farm in Ulu Yam, Selangor and the second farm in Genting Highlands, Pahang. P.S. For convenience, we recommend driving to the farm in Ulu Yam, which is a one-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Cheong and Yap Y.K. who began as hobbyists with a passion for growing a wide range of orchids in their backyards. In 2006, they established the Waltex Biotec Sdn Bhd and continue to grow beautiful Phalaenopsis orchids in a 6-acre agricultural land in Ulu Yam. It only took them another 3 years to expand their businesswith a second farm in Genting Highlands, which led them to become the largest Phalaenopsis orchid grower in Malaysia.

Phalaenopsis orchid, also known as 'moth orchid', is able to flourish with very little care and water. If you're looking for a fuss-free plant that adds a pop of colour to your home, this is it!

These orchids also make a wonderful gift for your family, more so for mothers who love flowers. Do note that visitors are not allowed to pluck these flowers and unfortunately, the orchid farm has seen such incidents happening in the past.
