Okay, orchid lovers. I need help caring for an orchid my mother gave me for a birthday gift. Why I have no idea as I don't do houseplants,
but it's labeled as Vuyl. Carnivale `Rio' and I need to know how often I should water and light requirements. I have a sun room. Should it
go there? I've heard orchids need lots of care and I'm pretty much not into pampering.

Thanks!

Hi Angie, I had to google that one because I'd never heard of a Vuyl. (Vuylstekeara) Orchid and it sure is a pretty one! I found this information that might help: http://beautifulorchids.com/orchids/orchid_care_tips/individ...

I bet you'd get some good advice and growing tips from our knowledgeable orchid growers over on the Orchid Forum: http://garden.org/forums/view/orchids/

Thanks, Lin. That was helpful. I'm not sure I'm a good mamma for this baby!
