Orchid up my Winter

Last weekend we saw these phalaenopsis orchids for sale at our local grocery store. They were so stunning we got three to try to grow. My husband has some experience with these from his Mom's house. She grew them all around her house. She had so many different kinds. She knew each and every one and the story about them. Unfortunately, Alzheimer's has taken her knowledge and skills away. 
I never have plants in the house since we have cats. 
They eat everything but have left these orchids alone, for now.

So I am going to try and give it a go and see if I can get them to survive in our house.

This one is my favorite.

If we get our greenhouse set up I can put them in there during the warmer months.
