    Default Brsda. Orange Delight *hilo sunrise* help

    Hi i am in need of some serious help. most of the plant is turning a dark green brownish color. The flesh is also becomming soft almost mushy. Is there anything i can do to reverse this? such as replanting? not watering. I have it under artifical light, keep it around 75 F. I suppose this may have been from over watering, so i have i have stopped watering it as frequently. need some help thank you

    Groundscore - are the p-bulbs mushy? If so, cut off all the mushy ones with a sterile blade, and rise the cut with hydrogen peroxide if you have any, or daconil or other fungicide. Allow the still healthy p-bulbs to dry off. If all the p-bulbs are mushy,,,,, well..... I'd but, I'm not an expert on this genera

    groundscore, that's a really bad infection. Like Diane said, cut off anything that's mushy / yellow brown using a sterilised blade. Pour hydrogen peroxide over any cuts, spray with some kind of disease control for ornamentals. It wouldn't hurt to repot the plant in fresh orchid mix, either.
