How do you repot a new orchid?

When you repot a new orchid, you should use a potting mix that’s specifically for orchids like sphagnum moss. You can find this at most garden stores. Make sure the pot you choose has drainage holes, as sitting water will kill your orchid by rotting its roots. Line the pot with a small amount of potting mix and gently place the orchid in it; then, fill the gaps with more mix, taking care not to pack it too tightly. Finally, water your plant and monitor it to see how it takes to its new pot.
