To grow orchids, choose a snug pot and use a porous potting medium such as bark chips, sphagnum moss or perlite. Place your orchid in a location that receives ample indirect light each day, such as a south- or east-facing window. Maintain a humidity level of 50-75% by running a humidifier or placing a tray filled with pebbles and water near the orchid. Water them once per week, allow the potting medium to dry out between waterings, and repot them every 2 years to give them plenty of room to grow!
