    Hi everyone,
    I got one from a friend and am kinda worry it would make it or I may already kill it. So it has 4 leaves and 1 small new leaf growing (intentionally). I repotted it because of the root rot problem and had to cut away almost the roots. It has still 4 roots in the media which are dark green when wet and 2 healthy aerial roots. I potted it in bark chips mix with seramis and a little sphagnum moss. The plant is placed near a south window where it is bright and warm without direct sunshine. What do you think? Should I be worry and do something else or just be patient and look how it goes?

    Hi Troy! I suggest you wait for it and be patient, just like what Danni is always saying after a major orchid surgery, it will bounce back but will not take overnight, as long as you give proper nutrients and care, I’m sure you will have a healthy orchid in no time… Well, good luck and hope all your babies are in great shape. God bless!

    Thanks so much Lhyne! That’s exactly what I needed. I am not usually impatient but with this plant… can’t help worrying. Anyway I will be just patient and wait to see how it goes.

    It’s always worth it to wait patiently. The plant is bouncing back alright. I hope to see some blooms this year.

    Well the orchid is growing roots, 5 new roots in total. I think it would produce a flower spike in the time the one new leaf finishes developing. But perhaps it would bloom next spring or summer.
