TO DO WHEN U GET IT: - Put the loved one in a pot that is preferably bigger than 11cm wide. - Add a mix of soil with good drainage. Orchid mix, barch, perlite etc is great! I usually go at least 30% of the material that adds to drainage. - Moist the inside of a see through plastic bag and put it over the plant. This encloses moisture that is important and will decrease the stress of the plant. - Put the plant in a bright location but not in direct sunlight. - I usually leave the plastic bag on for a week or two and then I spray it alot and keep trays of water nearby. Enjoy!
