Growing Orchids in Water - aka: "Water Culture" is an amazing way to grow orchids, especially if you love being able to see all the lush, green, sexy root nubs like me.  Plus, without media, you don’t have to worry about having creepy crawlies hiding in the media and eating those tender roots.

Remove the orchid from its store-bought pot. I like to give the plant a fresh start by cleaning off the roots under running water. The roots are usually pretty compacted, so do so very gently and be careful not to break any of them — the running water will help loosen the moss and/or bark you are getting rid of. If you notice any dead roots (black and hollow), now is a good time to remove them.
