I'm sure some of us will receive a plant this Mother's Day, and in case you receive on of those beautiful orchids in a pot, I have two tips for you:
1) Do not overwater. Orchids do not need a lot of water. Once a week you can dip the pot in water for a one minute and that will do it. Or just use water spray to water it. It's better to have less water than too much water.
2) Keep it in the shade. You can put it outside but no direct sunlight please. It does not need a lot of sunlight. It needs a lot of air. If you want, just keep it inside the house (like next to a window).
Those two simple tips will keep your orchid plant alive. The photo here is from an orchid plant that was given to me 3 years ago. That's how I learned my tip - when I did what I shared it, it worked! And this year, they bloomed! I hope I get another orchid plant this mothers' day :)
