New orchid owner, two species.
I went a bit crazy today buying plants I know nothing about. I know a bit, I've loved orchids for a long time, but I don't know about caring for particular species.
First I bought a pale yellow phalaenopsis, which is lovely but seem pretty common. It's in a solid (no drainage) pot in what appears to be mossy stuff. I am afraid this will allow the roots to rot, but I thought I'd ask people who know something about it!
My other orchid is a lovely bakerara. It's my favorite, but don't tell the other one. It's roots are kinda overflowing and it is in a typical thin black nursery pot. It is in some kind of loose dirt.
I have many orchid pots, orchid bark, orchid fertilizer, and various kinds of dirt and dirt additives.
What the heck do I do for these beauties?
