    I would keep the p-bulb in a humid, shaded place. I used to throw them in a clay pot and mist them, but they do better when thrown somewhere and forgotten. Eventually they will throw off keikeis.

    It will be a long time before it will bloom if it is in that poor of shape. Try some rooting hormone and as Connie says, keep it humid and in shade. Good luck!

    Cheers,
