Ok I just brought an orchid but the container it came in is glass and it has no drainage hole in the container. What should I do? Should I repot it or just leave it alone? Please help!

If it's a phal you can repot. Phals don't mind being repotted while in bloom.

It does not matter what it is, if it's in a pot with no drainage it HAS to be repotted.
