    Default A Ghost Orchid for Christmas

    a friend of mine gave me one for Christmas but I am having a hard time with it. Only had it a week and the root ends are already getting brown tips. Any ideas on where or how I can keep this at my house or should I take it into the Greenhouse? just afraid the greenhouse will have too much air

    Hey, I've been having a little bit of trouble myself. I got a flask of fifty and now down to about half!!! I got some live moss today as I heard this is the best stuff. I previously had them mounted horizontally on cork mount, and tied screen over it. I watered three times a day sometimes more and it still wasn't enough!!!! They need extremely high humdity, constant moisture, and low light levels, no air movement!! Don't use regular sphag moss!! It will rot them. Good luck!!!! All this work!!! they better grow!!!
