Today, I received a housewarming gift from an easily offended friend of mine. I recently explained to her how terrible I am at keeping plants alive. What did she get me? An orchid. FML

She probably specifically chose an orchid as the plant to give you because they're extremely easy to keep alive. set it next to a window and water it once a week and it will be fine.

Don't water the roots. But ice cubes between the roots. And water very very sparingly

Orchids are really easy to tend to :) just water them a little once a week, put them somewhere with sunlight and maybe give them a tiny bit of cold coffee as fertilizer every couple weeks and they should be fine. They lose their flowers once every second or third month. Dont throw them away! They start sprouting again soon after

Make sure she becomes an EX-friend! A friend listens to what you are saying instead of doing the exact opposite so she can be offended! You may want to tell her to get a thicker skin, too!

dont get water on the leaves. that will cause stem rot and kill the orchid. you can leave it in bark and water only the substrate or you can look up water culture. i do it with mine and they love it
