is it possible to revive my orchid (or what's left out of it:)

theforestgrowerAugust 8, 2012

Hello,

I would really appreciate any advice on what to do with my orchid. It's been like this for couple of months or longer. I've been keeping it outside for the last month, not watering a lot. Is it worth keeping it or could I throw it away? And what are the ways to revive it?

Many thanks!!!

Unless it is really special to you, I'd suggest dumping it. At least several years to get this one back to blooming condition, if it is even possible.

If you want to try: Unpot, clean all dead roots, repot in new bark media, trying to get the remaining roots in the new media, and sit off to the side for a few weeks. Water when dry and and don't let it sit in any standing water.

Good luck,

Bob

Thanks Bob, I really appreciate you taking time to answer my question. The orchid isn't that dear to me, so I'll dump it.

Best regards,

Vaida

I agree with westoh, just dump it and get another one. Leeflea.
