    Never give up. Orchids are tougher than we think. I bet that in a couple of months you will have some new growth.

    I'm not sure there actually were snails present anymore, but better safe than sorry!

    Well, this guy lost the fight. I think it was too shocked from repotting or something. All the p-bulbs shriveled up and became smushy. No signs of life. Kinda bummed since that one set me back $30 :/

    I'm thinking I don't have very good luck with Onc type orchids. My Brsdm is doing OK, but it's not as good as a lot of my other orchids. *le sigh*
