Do I water orchid from top or bottom?

You can water orchids from the top or bottom. It doesn’t really matter which method you use, as long as you make sure the roots are getting enough water. If you’re watering from the bottom, make sure the potting mix is moistened all the way through; if you water from the top, don’t get any water on or in the crown. If there is any water in the crown, dab it away with a tissue. For what it’s worth, in nature, orchids don’t live in soil so are watered from above!
