  • Check the roots that are in the plastic liner. If they are green and the bark is dark and moist, watering can wait a few more days! If the roots look gray, and the bark is dry, it’s time to water.

  • Place the orchid in a watertight container.

  • Pour water onto the bark, and let the water fill the container to the halfway mark.

  • Let the orchid soak for at least 20 minutes. If the orchid is very dry, it can soak for 1-2 hours.

  • Return the orchid to the decorative pot and enjoy.
