not many roots left...what now?
My phaleonopsis finished blooming so I thought I would see what was in the tightly packed sphagnum that it came in. I feel it was too packed to be healthy. When I gently pulled out the moss I found it had only 2 roots that might make it and one is questionable. There is one little 'nub' of a new root trying to develop. I cut out the rotten and dried up roots. I have had loosely packed sphagnum in my other orchid and it is doing great so I prefer to stay with sphagnum. Now, with so few roots do I water it the same, keep it more moist, or what. In other words, is there anything I should do differently until it gets more roots. ty
