Phalaenopsis Orchid in a Glass Vase (No Drainage)
My husband recently gave me a beautiful Phalaenopsis Orchid for my birthday. It currently has a 2 foot high bloom stem and five 6-8 inch healthy dark green leaves. It is planted in medium sized bark, with moss on top, in a 6 inch wide glass vase with no drainage. I am concerned that I cannot water it effectively. We live in Las Vegas, very hot and dry. The first two flowers on the stem are starting to wilt. I gather that I should put it on a water tray.... Should I be misting it as well? How often? Should I transplant it into a different pot after the blooms are over? If so, what kind of pot? I appreciate any advice you can give me.
