I just bought my wife an orchid from Sam's Club with 4 flower spikes. 2 are wilting badly and the other 2 look rough now. This is after about 2 weeks.
I have read that the ice once a week thing is BS so am no longer doing that. We will be watering them from the tap, giving them a good soaking and then draining.
I do have a few questions about things though.
If these were any other plant I would say they are root bound. I pulled the pots from the tin they were in and there are roots everywhere. Is this normal or bad?
The pots are not 'normal' to what I know. They are plastic, with what I would describe as an upside down cup molded into the middle so things are forced to the sides. There are several drainage holes around the bottom. Is this the proper pot?
The bark or media seems to not be tightly packed, but I am afraid to stick my finger in due to the root bound issue. I don't want to damage the roots. They came with green moss all over the top of the pots. Is that needed?
Sorry for the newbie questions, but I really want to keep these guys going. I can make most anything grow, but have no experience with these.
