a friend gave me a lovely orchid last year, it was lovely until flowers fell off and some people at work found a pleasure in removing the things that covers new buds/blossoms (i dont know the right term)
anyway, its been more than a year and no flowers till now, there are some rotten roots and new one, i have been reading alot online, and i got very confused so i decided to ask for help from experts, i have read in a previous post an advice to cut the orchid above the last nod and seriously im too scared to do that so i decided to show you my orchid, please help me ...
Hi, please don't panic. You have to repot this orchid into new bark based potting mix, can get it easily from a hardware store.
Simply follow this link.
Just make sure you get a ready mix compost for repotting. The author has provided the ingredients for the mix if you want to make your own.
many thanks i really appreciate your reply i'll do this and hopefully i'll do it right
Sorry for the late reply - it is final exam week for me. Your plant looks like it needs a repot as suggested by Gurjeet. Here is a video that we did to suplement what you will learn from Eric's article on repotting a phal. Be sure to cut those spikes off and let the plant grow healthy roots.
You pull it out of the pot, then cut off the rotten roots.replanted with charcoal small dam.Coal dam small 1cmx1cmx1cm.Smaller the better.then locate the tree, up coal on the roots.And allowed to dry for 3 days.then you spray the B-1 in Thailand 3 days 1 times until new roots.
