I have checked your articles. Great work! and I wanted to thank you for the tips you provide us with.
Now I need your advise on something-related to orchids of course.
The thing is that more than a year and a half ago I bought two orchid plants (Phaleonopsis) from a flower shop in St Petersburg, Russia.
They were already with flowers so I enjoyed them until after they fell off and then start to notice that the plants after blooming started dying off. One of then definitely dried out. The second one I kind of revived, after repotting (but never change the compost which came with the plant, applying some natural fertilizers for 4 months. My work was rewarded this year – some months ago – when it started developing 1 stem. Nowadays the plant I have has 6 large and 1 small leaf + one small plant with already 4 small leaves (I have read that it’s called KEIKI- a vegetative form of orchid propagation); 2 stems, 10 unopened flowers.
I am very fond of my plant and I am really concerned because: 1st I noticed the roots were rotted and the question is: Do I have to replant it? i’ve read it’s not recommendable…:( ; 2nd, the flowers instead of opening are acquiring the color they are supposed to take when open and mature, but then I see with terror that they are drying off. What should I do? Is there any way to see at least of open.
I live in Russia, so, weather conditions differ from my sunny Cuba where I had 4 types of orchids in my yard. Could you please help me solve this out?
