Today we continue the subject of caring for orchids we buy without flowers, if we know at least the family they belong to. Watch the first part here https://youtu.be/e5OgdMR7FHk

Now that we established at least what type of orchid we have, or at least the family, we can go ahead and offer the basic safest care. Before that though, we need to make sure our orchid has a good start!
Repotting new orchids, especially the ones that finished flowering, offers us the chance to check the root system, cu away deteriorated roots and check for pests. Whatever medium we opt for, it is a good idea for it to be fresh and unused (organic), or sterilized if used before (inorganic only).
Very often we will find bush snails in the pot, they can damage an orchids root system so bad that the orchid would be at great risk of dying after a while. More on them here https://youtu.be/3_Ej9sk0erM
Another aspect we should keep in mind is a pest infestation, which is a common occurrence too. More on common pests here https://youtu.be/cjUSPLXThfU
After the orchid is repotted it should be treated on the safe side and try to avoid extremes. Until it becomes established and you learn what orchid you have, you don;t know what can seriously harm it.
