Default Its growing

Just before Christmas I was at Lowe's I found a orchid that was in a nice pot I want for a cactus, it had a dead looking orchid in it for for $1.50 I got the pot and stuck the dead orchid in a small pot the only one I had on hand and now its coming back it has 2 new leaves on it and lots of new roots, I think its a catt but I'll have to wait until it gets bigger. I'm just happy to see it growing.
Once it get a little bigger and has more roots I will put it in a smaller pot.

I watered it when I potted it up and after that I just misted it every morning, it was in a small 10 gal tank but now its growing its in the sun room where it get lots of light no no sun on it and I watered it this morning and will mist it for the next week just to be safe from over watering it and then water it about every 10 days until it gets bigger, unless it should be watered more I'm sure some one can tell me if I should, I just want it to grow and bloom some day

I'd let it just get dry but not sitting dry before watering.

Let it get dry, but make sure it's not remaining dry.
