How do I take care of a phalaenopsis orchid?
I just purchased a phalaenopsis orchid and the pot has bark in it but the roots are exposed. It is also very dry. Should I repot it or just water it?

These orchids are epiphytes, so having their roots exposed is normal. The plant likely needs water if it seems too dry. Here is more info on caring for this type of orchid: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/orchids/phalaenopsis-orchid-care.htm
