Gentile Tiziana,
it is true that the phalaenopsis roots prefer transparent vases, since they are green and therefore the cells on their surface practice photosynthesis; It is also true that in general the phalaenopsis roots, if grown in non-transparent pots, tend to soak and leave the pot, to reach the light. If your phalaenopsis is healthy and lush it will bloom later in the spring.
