How do you care for an orchid for dummies?

Orchids need bright, indirect sunlight from an east- or south-facing window. They need watering roughly once a week or every two weeks; check your orchid’s pot to see if the mix is wet or its roots are green, and if so, wait a few days before watering again. Misting is good because orchids like humidity, but not essential. Feed your orchid with fertilizer during the growing season, which is spring and summer.
