    Thank you. I contact the web host and they sent me a video as well. I use water that sits put for 24 hours and use it for my fish tanks, so I will have plenty for orchid. I read that they should have warm water?

    Don't know if this is going to work.

    It's a little blurry. I'm new to this lap top and all the new functions, I'll try working on the other two pics. The tall leaf in back with the new sprout, I cut off it turned yellow.

    Roots are white, dry and shriveled, I got two pics posted.

    Well, I think it's a goner, I came home from work and the new shoot and leaves are slowly turning yellow, one little old leaf is still green on cane.

    Nursing most orchids back to life follows this regimen: low light, weekly watering, medium airflow (not stagnant, but not a box fan on high) and daily monitoring for changes. Keep it in coarse media so it doesn't get too wet, and some pics would help us diagnose it further

    Well they can be temperamental little buggers, but to kill a dendrobium.....0_o......
    lol, Give it a bit of time. this guy is a deciduous dendrobium, and is it coming into winter in the states? Thats the start of the dormancy period. Dont worry! Keep it dry, but water maybe once a month. Then in late winter/early spring, you should see a new shoot, or even a new cluster of shoots start to appear!

    Snowghost45. Dont throw it away its not a goner even though its doing a good job of giving you this impression. As Jordan said these hard cane dendros are deciduous. Dont cut the canes, these may well give you some blooms in first half of 2012 and also act as food and and water reserves to sustain the plant. In new grow season you will have new canes rise from the bark and new healthy whitish green roots. Its just thrown a tantrum thats all with the yellowing and opted for dormancy. The fortnight / monthly application of water will keep it ticking over.

    With dendrobiums, as long as they are not completely brown, they are alive. Good luck,

    OK I will just take everyone's advice. I appreciate it. I had two pics here, not sure where they went. I'm not the best photographer and all the cropping and resizing drives me crazy. I'll keep at it til I can get one and post it. I bought another moth orchid and it is blooming. Will search for care on that orchid.

    Dang it, I cut the yellow leaf, tried soaking the pot cause the roots are dry, white and brittle. I have a new leaf and it is trying to yellow, one cane I cut but I won't bother it anymore. I get frustrated with the electric base board heat I have, trying to find a window that provides bright light and keeping my three orchids happy. The sun is changing and now I have different exposures in different windows.

    Hey folks,

    Still getting the hang of this website. I have current pics posted regarding this orchid under the thread Dying Dendrobium, third page. If you want to take a peek and let me know what you think I would appreciate it.
