Easiest plants to keep in the house! Years ago a nursery place told me to put 2 TBSP of water on my orchids every 8 days or when their 'soil' is dry, they do not like to be wet. Just put them in a non-drafty area and indirect sunlight. I keep them all over my home now and they last forever and re-bloom for me. I even pot them in my bigger pots and put several in the same pot. I LOVE to give them as flower arrangements for special occasions or birthdays!
I have luck with Kroger's orchids priced from 9.99 to 19.99 and IKEA's orchids 9.99 to 17.99.

Ignazio on Sep 05, 2016I agree with the author. Phalaenopsis are very forgiving orchids. Every two or three weeks I run about a quart of water through the pot, and let it drain thoroughly. I always add heavily diluted orchid food to the water (about 1/8 the recommended mixture). As long as you do not force the plant to flower more than once in a given year, you should see blooms yearly. Enjoy!!!!!
