You can water either by the immersion method or in the traditional way with a watering can. (see the many posts I’ve created on this blog for plant specific growing guidelines).
It is essential to allow the plant to drain fully before putting it back on its saucer or in its holder; root rot resulting from standing water is one of the main causes of orchid death. Aim to keep the compost moist at all times, although the surface may be dry. Water about once a week; more in summer, less in winter. Use tepid soft water.
