    Default Any hope for my dying Dgmra. Pluto's Drummer 'Pacific Pink'?

    I bought this Dgmra. Pluto's Drummer 'Pacific Pink' from a local orchid show in May. It was doing well and once it dropped its blooms, I decided to repot. Since then, it seems to have developed some root rot or something. I have no idea. Anyway, the whole thing seems to be dying, but it seems like the roots are doing ok in the media. Is this a total lost cause or should I eventually expect new foliage since the roots look good to me?

    looking at the condensation at the walls of the pot, looks like medium is over moist. I would remove the infected bulbs/leaves if any and doze it with Physan 20. I think creating some slits in the pot or repotting in an more airy pot is an option.

    If the plant has healthy roots, then it should be okay! It will have to grow a few years (to get new growth) that will bloom for you. I would remove the dead (brown) stuff from the plant and repot the plant. Good luck!

    cheers,
