    Ok, so I have actual MOULD on the roots!!! Taking it out now, I was wondering if I should do a peroxide dip and leave it out of any media to let dry. I should also keep it it a somewhat shady place for awhile after right?

    Thanks

    Yes, yes, and yes. Sorry, I knew something was going on with the roots. I hope it will be alright after you get it cleaned up.

    Just pour the proxide over the roots. Orchid don't normally grow in pots, so leaving it out of the pot should be fine. Be sure to keep the humidity up around it though.
