What should I do with my mini orchid, friends? Should I take the roots out and put then in water to grow? Or transfer? I have no orchid soil right now..

@yamh081108 Absolutely not. Looks like a very young plant and it is in spike. Keep it like that and when the flowers are finished (some times they grow new flowers from the same spike) then you can repot it. A small clear plastic pot with fine bark and a little sphagnum moss is the perfect.

If there's no hole in the bottom of that plastic pot, don't let water pool in the bottom around the roots.

So pretty! They bloom for months! Later after all the flowers dry up and fall off, don't cut the flower spike off down near the roots, just clip off just behind the part where the buds were attached, and it might make a branch and rebloom on the same stalk. I got some #orchids this size a couple years ago and got them repotted by a local orchid nursery and the lady told me about the reblooming thing and it worked for mine.
