I just have a few questions about orchids. I recently found them on sale at Walmart for $8! I have always wanted one of these, but they were either reeally expensive or on sale because they looked sickly. These ones were actually very nice and healthy. I did a little bit of research on them, but I would like some personal advice. The one I got has a leaf "span" of about a foot at the bottom and a stalk with four large white flowers with purple spots and a yellow center. It's very pretty! The stalk is still growing, so it looks like there are more flowers to come! Now, I read that it needs a humid environment, which isn't really a problem because my dorm room is pretty humid. I read that spraying it will increase the humidity as well, so I plan to do that. However, I was planning on sticking it on my window sill, but read that phalaenopsis don't do well in direct sunlight. Around 3:00pm I get pretty strong sun for a few hours in my window. I guess my plant would not do well there? I've been keeping it in a darker place now to reduce it's stress and so it can settle, but should I put it in the window sill after a few days...or leave it in indirect sunlight off to the side? Also, what kind of pot do I need for it? I bought a pot, but it is just a regular decorative flower pot. my lab teacher here at school said orchids need a special pot with holes in the sides. However, the orchids in our green house don't seem to have any special pots that they are in. What should I do? I can still return the pot I got from walmart and buy a different one (Or get a different plant for it!) Any other info I should know? I will get a picture of my new plant ASAP. I just want to make sure I don't kill it! I would love to build a collection of orchids once I settle this one in and learn the proper care. This particular species is supposed to be a good beginner plant from what I have read.
