Thanks for both replies.

 

@fidgetbones - cheers but I don't plan on spending that much yet.

 

@ Jimmmy - I'm surprised to read about your problems, I've been using them for years and have always received good quality plants.

It's probably on here somewhere, but is there a discount code for Thompson and Morgan and is it only for subscribers to the mag?

Thanks for the responses - it is phalenopsis. 

I understand that it is better to water from below and the instruction card that came with it says not to remove it from its pot.  Will it not become potbound over time?  The other thing that it says is to cut off the flower spike when it's finished - what happens after that?

What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

I thought as much, I saw something very similar in our local park last week and strangely enough I knew exactly what it was but somehow it looked different to mine!

Senior moment! 

Thanks Guys

 I had no idea I could do this, thanks Guys!  The bottom one was taken in the pouring rain, sorry about the quality.

See if this works, it goes to another forum.  It's a shame we can't preview our posts on this site.

I've been given an orchid for my birthday - can I water it with tap water or does it require something special?
