Please help ! does this photo say its alive?
I am writing with great sadness about my orchid. Although it was very nice when i first got it (as a present), then first flowers fell and spikes started to get dry, so i cut the spikes from close to bottom, but they kept on drying.. then i kinda lose hope and left it without water for a month or little longer, then came a new leaf from middle as in the picture. but old spikes are totally dead and dry now, plus the leaves below the spikes got dry and fell as well.. so that's how it looks now..
And i dont know what to do with the dry spikes.. should i just cut them off completely from the body? there are some blackish spots where they are connected to the body
I dont want to throw it, i ll do everything i can to keep it..
thank you very much for your helps, it is a very valuable gift for me..
