Orchids are easy care plants that typically bloom for three to ten weeks. With a little attention, they will last for years.  Place your orchid in bright indirect light away from drafts. An ideal temperature range is 65 to 85 degrees.  Avoid any temperature extremes or placing orchids near heating/cooling vents.  Orchids need to be watered every 5 days, and they need perfect drainage. Feed orchids once a month with a liquid fertilizer.

DO NOT LEAVE ORCHIDS IN STANDING WATER!

To re-bloom an orchid, cut just below the lowest flower and 1/4 inch above the next node.

Orchids prefer to be root bound and repotting is only necessary every three years.
