I have 2 African violet plants and they have been doing well. However, I just recently bought a $15 orchid plant and I want to make sure it has the best care because orchids are my favorite flowers and I don't want to kill it because it doesn't have enough sunlight.
Just be sure and water it daily and it should be fine. (We have a green house and I've seen it 120 + degrees in there. Water water water) The sun coming through the window can be extra hot.
Check with where you bought it, but most orchids do NOT do well in direct sunlight. That's what I was told about the one I got my girlfriend.
That is fine but be sure you use the right plant food for the plant. I had 1 and it died because I had the wrong food, good luck!!
