    Indoor orchids thrive in these conditions:

        * Strong light, but not direct late-afternoon sunlight (although dendrobiums can handle more sun)
        * High humidity
        * Turbulent air flow around the roots
        * Regular periods of drying, alternating with drenching rains
        * Temperatures between 50 degrees and about 85 degrees

    An Indoor orchid will bloom if you place it on an east facing window.  However, avoid the direct noon day sun as they do well with filtered light.  Also use weak fertilizer once a week depending on the orchid type.  Watering orchids can be done just before fertilizing them for optimum results.
