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.
