Hi orchid growers,
sara, if your orchid came in a transparent plastic pot, leave it in there - it's perfect for moth orchids as they benefit from having their roots in the light.
Richard, my moth orchid flowers gradually fade one by one. I just gently pull them off when I think they don't look pretty anymore. If your stem is healthy and green, don't cut it off.
kater1, I water my orchids in the bath with shower water. I use slightly warm water to make them feel as though they are in a tropical forest. They do fine with this treatment which I do once a week.
