In general, provide bright, indirect light to orchids. Full sun can scorch their leaves. Fertilize lightly during the growing season and keep the roots evenly moist, but not too damp. Keep your orchid in a cool place (60F) at night and a warm place (70) during the day. It's easy to provide the humidity an orchid needs by placing the pot on a tray of stones in which you keep a half inch of water. Keep water in the tray, but don't let it reach the level of the pot. As the water evaporates it will humidify the air around the leaves. Hope this information helps!
