All our orchids come potted in moss, so you don't have to worry about finding the material.

You need to raise the humidity levels around your orchid in order to get the best out of your blooms.

Find a tray with gravel, and then put water in the tray and then place the orchid above it.

The evaporating water will help the plants thrive in a dry environment, but again, never place orchids in standing water.

Room temperate in most homes will be acceptable for growing orchids, anywhere between 55F at night and 80F during the day is best.

Overwatered orchids have few good roots, and many soggy, mushy, brown, dead ones. Most tolerate being dryer better than staying soggy, so don't over water, but don't let them completely dry out either.

An orchid should never be allowed to stand alone in water, you need to let water run or be sprayed over the roots and surrounding moss that is provided with your orchid.

If the roots are white, firm, and fleshy with green tips the orchid is healthy.

You can usually judge how much light an orchid needs by watching the leaves.
