how to water zygopetalum?

hello everyone
last weekend I was on small orchids exhibition in my city where I bought zygopetalum..there were also some lecturers how to take care of them, when to water them but it differs a bit from what I read in articles..I wanted to ask you to get sure which version is right..one source says that before next watering soil must dry while the second source says that soil must be wet all the time..what do you think? how do you take care of them?

I like to keep my zygos moist--not soggy wet, but moist. Their leaves will curl if they dry out too much. Good luck!

Do not spray the leaves because they are prone to fungal issues. Also, zygos like higher humidity.
