Orchid

My mum bought me this gorgeous orchid.  I have no experience of them so any tips gratefully received.  Can you tell what sort of orchid it is?

    It's one of these.

    Super easy. Even I can keep them alive. The best thing you can do is try not to fuss over it.image

    Give it a north facing window, out of direct sunlight. Stand it in rainwater with a few drops of orchid fertliser once a week,for an hour. Let it drain and repeat a week later. When the flowers die off, cut the dead spike to a node on the flower stem, it will then reshoot from the cut and flower again.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Thank you both. I'll do my best!
