I'm so new to this that I don't know the name of this type. Will you enlighten me, please? I have two phalenops and a cymbidium.

I am sorry I don't know the names, just love the planst. I was recommended to water with warm diluted tea so I keep all my tea bags for the week & dilute with warm water when I water the plants. They all sit in window sills but the best ones I must say are in the bathroom & get the steam from the shower so I guess that helps. I was in a local garden centre at the weekend & saw the most magnificent specimen so took a photo I will put it on the site this w/e probably. it had no soil at all.

Hi Sassy! thanks for the tip about the tea...lol. mine are in the bathroom too! read someplace that orchids are one of the largest plant families there is...
found Cypripedium Reginae and C. parviflorum (ladies slippers) pink and white and solid yellow..respectively, in my seed/plant catalogue. they are native orchids..(Native to N.A.) there are actually orchids that grow in the sub-arctic. So you don't have to go to Borneo to get one.hhaha.Some simply need a support, they draw their nutrients from the air? (epiphytes) and some need soil and some are parasites, or to be fair, they are symbiots. .I also think that they cause a kind of dimentia...(just kidding)
I have two phalenopsis and a cymbidium.will tune in for the pic.
