Orchid B. nodosa

Orchid B. nodosa (Brassavola nodosa (Lady Of The Night))

New bud showing. This is a performer at my house, blooms three or four times a year. Not the prettiest bloom, but nice and reliable.

Are those roots hanging out in the air? I've never done orchids.

Those are air roots. The orchid drinks water and gains nutrients from the air, a epiphytic behavior. This is why they demand more humidity. The thicker leaves types lie the cattleya or this hybrid can take a dry spell a little better than the thinner leaved varieties. Paphiopedulum or Phaleonopsis are two I'd recommend for easier forgiving
