While orchid is in bloom, only minimal care is required with just a little water, medium to bright indirect light and room temperatures of 65-75°F.
Watering your orchid can be easy as you follow these steps.
- Take it out of ceramic pot if there is no hole on the bottom and then,
place it in a plastic grower's pot.
- Place your orchid in the sink under a slow running tab and water it evenly for
10-15 seconds on each side of plant.

let the orchid's potting mediums to be constantly wet. However, you should
never let the plant bone dry.
