My name is Mark and I just got my first orchid on Friday. It is a Vanda (V. Mevr. L. Velthuis x V. Princess Blue) and wasn't in perfect shape, but I got it for 10 cents. My wife and I also bought a blooming Beallara (Pacific Treasures 'Everything Nice') on Sunday for $15. Any pointers about these genera/hybrids is welcome as this is our first foray into orchids. Even things like when and how to water is welcome because I've found a lot of different info on the internet. Also, I live in SE Texas where it is still in the 80's and humid out. Would they benefit by being outside during the day and just indoors during the cool nights? I have a covered patio and can easily protect them from direct sunlight.
