Just bought a ground orchid. Never saw them before. Where is the best place for them? Sun, shade?? How about watering?

Ground orchids do best in a shady spot but one with bright light, not deep shade. They also like soil with some compost mixed in and moderate moisture levels. Other than that they're very easy to grow and naturalized well in the South!

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
