I bought a few phalaenopsis orchids on clearance that had been left to die. Two seem to be doing ok, but one had wilty leaves. I did a little online reading about it and learned that it apparently had root rot. I removed all the moss and found there were no roots left whatsoever. I had read that putting it in a clear bag with moist moss could encourage it to grow new roots. Has anyone had success with this? I put it into the bag a few weeks ago, and I think it is just getting moldy.
Also...one of the other phals I "rescued" seems to have a few tiny dark flies. Are these the "fungus flies" I've heard of? I intend to repot this phal, and trim any ugly-looking roots. Will that resolve the bug issue?
