    I know what you mean. When I was at big box store this past weekend, I saw a whole shelf of orchids planted in spag inside clear glass cubes...the water line was clearly visible, and only about an inch lower than the surface. So, they were all swimming basically. The flowers looked OK then, but they'll drown soon enough. It was sad.

    Welcome.
    The others have given good advice.
    My experience is that Den Phaleonopsis:
    Like to dry out completely between watering, do not like temps below 70F and like lots of light.
    Good luck.

    Day 8 in its new pot and my dend is celebrating by throwing up not just 1, but 2 tiny new spikes! yes TWO!



    It's still in my sun room (quarantine), maybe it likes the warmth there? Who am I kidding--after this little time, it is probably blooming from a fertilizer high from all that miracle gro it was stuffed in.

    Any way, thank you all for your help and for giving me a little confidence in my orchid growing!!
