Hello everyone,

I just started caring for this orchid last September. Since I got it I soaked it in water for an hour or so whenever it looked dry/silvery. Everything's been fine so far... the flowers finished blooming and they've been clipped off and the bottom 2 leaves got bendy and have fallen off.

But I'm wondering why the roots on the surface have died and shriveled. All the new roots have died! I was so excited to see them grow. In the photos you can see it has some bad burns- this was my mistake but it was facing direct sunlight while in the car when I was moving. Though, it didn't look like the new roots were sunburnt, I'm worried whatever I'm doing now will kill any new roots. Is there any room for recovery here?
