Is the picture of the plant in flower your plant? Or is it one that your plant is supposed to be like (identical names)? It's hard to find pictures when you search for them, as often other plants come up in the search engine. You may want to treat your orchid with fungicide too. Physan is often recommended, you can check at stores that sell gardening stuff for fungicides for houseplants, too. If you try a product with neem oil, be sure to keep your plant out of the sun for a day or so afterwards, the oil can burn the leaves in the sun.
LOL no, not in the flower, the poor one is mine but it should look like the one in the flower
It looks bad not even one firm root

oppps...no healthy roots seen...I suspected that might be the case
Do you think I still can save it?? Please say Yes ....
Good culture = good root system. If you succeed in saving it it is important to get the culture down. I find bark mix works the best for me with the plant in a plastic pot and not over potted (meaning that the pot is only large enough to hold the root system. Water and allow to approach dryness before watering again. I find Phrags tolerate much more water than Paphs. but Paphs don't like going totally dry.
Hope you succeed in saving it!
What as helped me with my paphs is to pot them in clear pots , this way you can keep an eye on the roots(if i have nice white tips to them).It also helps because you can see condensation on the inside of the pot ,if not & pot feels light it's time to water.
