Help! Newbie with orchids!
Hello, I just went to my first orchid society meeting and wound up winning two orchids in the raffle. The first is a Denrobium Kingianum, and the second is an Aeredovanda Kinnarree.
The Dendrobium came potted so I think that all I need to do is water it once the medium dries out and put it in bright light correct?
The Aeredovanda however... came in a plastic bag for some reason. No medium, just two roots stretching out in opposite directions. I asked for advice on this one and was told to put it in a plastic bag that's loosely closed with a wet sponge to increase the humidity and put it in a somewhat bright and warm place to get the roots to start growing again. I didn't have any bags big enough for the thing so I had to Macguyver a bag out of Glade Press 'n Seal and it's currently in there lying next to my window with about 1/5th of a wet sponge.
Does anyone have any suggestions for anything I should do?
