Thank you both so much! I shall TRY to keep it going, it's very pretty and looks extremely healthy. It's in the correct potting medium - the bark-like compost, and in what I assume is a 'proper' plastic orchid basket, very free draining and see-through.
The only 'pests' around ( so far ) are my cats, so it will have to be kept way out of their reach, probably in a room to which they're not allowed, or a high mantelshelf near a west-facing window. Would that be okay?
I'm in north east Scotland, by the way, so it's not exactly warm and/or humid.
Again, thank you for your advice, much appreciated
