What kind of orchids are they? They look similar to hardy orchids, but the leaves are not quite as wide. They look more like daylilies.
Orchids are more suitable grown indoors in pots with a bark-like growing medium. In the wild they usually attach to trees and get their nutrients from sources other than soil.
