Orchids like Phalaenopsis and Cattleya that need to dry out thoroughly before watering, moss requires a longer wait before watering and is less forgiving of too-frequent watering. Bark, which holds little water, poses less risk for these orchids. The rule of thumb: water the day before the medium is completely dry.

Lady slipper and nun's orchids enjoy conditions on the moist side and they'll do better if you don't let them go completely dry. Moss is a good choice for them, supplying adequate water for longer intervals between watering.

Watering: keep moist but never wet; do not stand pots in saucers of water. Most temperate-zone orchids such as cymbidiums are terrestrial – that is, they grow with their roots in a pot or the ground. They're easy to grow without needing a glasshouse or specialised knowledge, and are happy outside in most parts of Australia.
