Ella Maxwell talks about Orchids, specifically Phalaenopsis Orchids and how to care for them. Do what Ella says but not what she does with her orchids. Don’t overwater your orchids, which only need about a quarter cup of water. In most cases, they don’t need soil but instead use a bark mix, which drains quite well. A house plant that does need soil to grow is an African violet.
