Help with neglected orchid, please
Good morning all. I have a few orchids, mostly easy to grow, wonderfully blooming Phalaenopsis cultivars. I also have the orchid pictured here that hasn't bloomed since I got it (probably 3 or 4 years ago) and looks a bit worse for wear. I think it is a dendrobium cultivar; it has been so long since it bloomed that I can't remember the color of the blooms and the plant tag is long gone. From Neglected Orchid - Dendrobium?? From Neglected Orchid - Dendrobium?? From Neglected Orchid - Dendrobium??
As you can see, it has been long neglected with what appears to be a whole to plant hanging off the edge of the pot on one side. I am sure it hasn't bloomed since I got it (when it was blooming beautifully of course) because I fail to give it whatever conditions it needs to bloom. Not know exactly what sort of dendrobium it is doesn't help of course.
Will repotting it help? Should I cut off the plant hanging off the side and pot it separately? Do I remove the stems that just stick out of the medium and never leaf out? Should I just toss it and stick to my orchids-for-newbies Moth Orchids?
Hope someone here can help someone who obviously doesn't have a clue. :-O
