    Default Dying orchid

    Hello to all of you

    I am a new to this forum but i found interesting topics and decided to join you. I have several orchids phalaenopsis which are growing really fine.
    Last year I bought another type of orchid. I still doubt if it is miltonia or miltoniopsis. However, in the beginning it was good but it couldn't grow new leaves. I read a lot aout that kind of orchids but now results.
    Can you tell me if there is away to save it or give up taking care of such kind of orchids Name:  IMG_20131025_215425.jpg

    The pictures are too fuzzy to really ID the orchid, Like Steve, I would really like to know what medium it is grown in. Any way welcome from Malaysia.

    Also, does it have roots? The condition of the roots is very important. Can you get a picture of it from the other side (like 90 degrees from the one you posted, fairly close up, like the last picture)? I'd like to see the green part better if possible.

    I have one that is very sad, the back bulbs started to rot (came with a problem hidden in sphagnum moss from the big box store) and I cut all the rotted/dead bulbs off and it is not in medium at all. It is down to one bulb, no roots and one new shoot about 2/4" long. I figure if that new shoot will grow roots before the bulb gives up, I'll be fine. Otherwise, I'll have to go buy a new one, because I like it so well and fortunately have an ID on it, so that I can replace it.
