    Hi Karen, Your beautiful orchid is a hybrid cattleya - do you have a name? While it is in bloom you can enjoy it in the house - don’t water too much. Cattleyas have pseudo bulbs for water storage so if the roots are wet all the time the plant will not be happy. After the bloom fades you would grow it in 70 percent sun, light breeze and between 55 and 90F and over 50% humidity. Those are just guidelines - if you live in a tropical area you can put the plant on an east facing porch or if not in a window. Hope this helps. Carol
