    I caved....

    And finally bought one of those garden center Phalaenopsis. We'll see whether or not it lives...

    It's pretty, is it two tones of pink or is the lighter a white?

    Many orchids are quite durable ... phals tend to be quite easy for most folks. Just don't overwater.

    In what media is yours potted?

    It's light and dark purple, no pink present. Currently in a heavily aerated sphagnum mix (lots of perlite and charcoal) sitting in my greenhouse since it's the best space I've got for the moment. Won't have to water it for days.

    Should do fine ... though it really doesn't need the greenhouse. Should you're greenhouse space become too congested, you can grow it on a windowsill.

    The only reason it's in the greenhouse (which has long been crowded anyway) is I have no appropriate windowsill. The one in my room is already occupied and gets way too cold in winter, the living room one is occupied by the main greenhouse itself.
