    Did the plastic cup have holes in it? How often did you lift off the plastic bag. I believe breathing carbon dioxide into the bag helps the orchid. Maybe your regime on saving this orchid could help others with the same problem. Could you explain how long this procedure took, before roots and new leaf came?

    Thanks Rosie!
    Well, some cups had holes, some others not. i don't think that matters since the plant is not touching the moss.
    I was not really lifting the plastic, only when I was checking the plant up close and when I was adding water to the tray and the moss.
    The ones that have roots, already 2 inches long, took probably 2 or 3 weeks to start developing new roots. But I noticed that the new plants that I'm trying to save the same way, are taking longer. I think it's because the first ones were in fairly good shape, but without roots, and the new ones were very dehydrated, wrinkled and yellowing; the guys at the store had them outdoors and totally not caring for them.
    Here some new pictures!

    1st pic. When I was adding water (A bit too much on the tray!)

    2nd pic.The first plant. Nice roots I think! I thought it was growing a spike hehe but it was a new root between the leaves.

    3rd pic. Second plant. It's actually growing a second new leaf! Yaaaay!

    QUESTION FOR OUR EXPERTS:
    Can I repot this orchids now? Or I have to wait for longer roots??
    Thanks guys!!!

    Hi, you did an amazing job!
    I have a phal in pretty much the same situation as your was in (before you brought it back to life) and I am going to try you method. I just have a couple of questions; did you soak the sphag in water only or any rooting hormone like KLN? Also did you have them under lights?

    Thank you,
    Jessica
