once a week, place an ice cube at the base of the potted orchid.
if you have two in a pot or a particularly large orchid, use two ice cubes.
that's it.
don't water the orchid.
just place an ice cube at the base once a week.
of course, keep your orchid in indirect sun or other light.

This is genius. Thanks for sharing. I have a bit of green thumb with indoor plants. Maybe this will help.
