Phrag Super Grande is a wonderful orchid!! It loves heat and a free draining medium. Water as you say, but do not let it sit in water. These get super tall and have such amazing blooms. One of my favorite phragmipediums. This orchid is not really one I would suggest to a beginner since it takes some special care, but you have it and now, if possible, we can help you get it to bloom. I love phrags because many are so showy, but they do take special patience and care. Good luck, Byron!!
