    Orchids like bright light as in close to a window, but I don't think they would do good if it is a bright sun area. They like shaded bright light and lots of humidity. They also like the wood chip as soil and not dirt. We had one in Florida that did fantastic hanging on the edge of the covered area in our lanai because it was warm and very humid due to the pool. We took it in when it got cool in the winter.

    They are from the tropics and can grow in that area on sides of trees because they don't like dirt. If you live in an area like that then yes they should grow if planted properly but most of us in the USA except Florida.

    Do some basic internet research on orchids. They are epiphites, meaning they don't take nutrients from soil. Their roots are just for anchoring them to what they are growing on. They are tropical and don't tolerate the cold at all. The average home is actually cooler than they like. They like bright indirect light - not full sun - and very high humidity. If orchids aren't native to where you live, then you probably don't have the right growing conditions for them.
