This is a discussion on I could use an experts take on my keiki within the Phalaenopsis ('moth orchid') Information forums, part of the Frequently Asked Questions category; oh and thank you Bruce that video was very helpful...

thanks so much for the advice...I'm going to just repot it the way it is, and keep my fingers crossed. I had no idea about the exposed roots needing more humidity. Which, is something I just can't provide at the moment.
I AM enjoying learning more and more about orchids. It is becoming a full time passion of mine!
How completely intimidating....BUT despite the intimidation factor, I managed to re-pot my orchids...I didn't have any charcoal or coconut husks...Had to make do with what my little island here provides. Medium grade Orchid Bark.
I loosely packed it...hope I didn't kill my babies!!! thanks Bruce for the video...it gave me what tiny little amount of confidence needed to embark on this journey
Well as of this weekend...the mama crown is officially dead...looking as if the young keiki is on its own..it must've sucked the life right out of the already dying mother. Is the keiki next? the roots are still very new and small...I don't think seperating it would be good either but its living off of a dead mother...what to do?
i would cut it off and putt it in a pot.
