    Give them bright light... keep them away from direct sun until they are big enough. If
    you've got them mounted or barerooted I would water it daily.

    Seeing that they are still seedlings Randy's advice on light requirements sound just right. I can't help you with the watering though as our growing conditions here are very different. Here it's twice a day.

    Seeing that they are potted in some kind of bark mixture I think daily watering may be too much for these babies.... Id say I would water it just as the media is approaching dryness. But I'd wait for someone who has a similar condition as yours to chime in.

    Your humidity levels in are, what? maybe 10% during the winter? These guys like it MUCH higher than that. do you have a cool mist vaporizer, or a humidifier?

    This is going to be exciting to watch their growth span.why dont you make a journal or diary and photos of their progress at different stages.

    those look like very healthy seedlings. i have recently tried out a few seedling sized orchids, a few vanda types even, and have them potted similarly, or in small treefern pots. now that it is warm out, i mist the roots every morning, but still water twice a week, they are outside in bright shade. seedlings really don't have much of a water reserve to rely on, so the misting every morning with a spray bottle is really helping. after it cools down, and they start to get established they won't get misted so much.
