I have never purchased an orchid before. They appear as if they would be high maintenance. I’ve been assured that they’re pretty easy as long as you put them in a spot where they’re happy. The previous owner of our home told us he kept orchids in a window which has a radiator underneath it constant providing moist heat to the flowers.
Of course I don’t start slow with one plant. I find three that I have to take home! We’ve had them for just shy of a month and they seem to be doing well.
