How often should you water baby orchids?

Yesterday, we bought a cute little baby orchid plant at Trader Joe's. Its really small and petite, and its so fragile, we don't want to hurt it. How often should we water it? It is in good sunlight, on a windowsill. Thx

    Much depends on what type of orchid you have. Is it an ephiphyte or terrestrial? As a general rule, do not over water, but never let the roots dry out completely. I would hang a thin white drape to diffuse the direct sunlight.

    My orchid specialist waters his once a week. Just be very careful not to get any water on the flowers or leaves, just on the soil. To prevent it getting any didseases
