Orchid update!!! We have new roots forming.

Oh my gosh!!! Look at the roots on my phalaenopsis. This orchid was truly on deaths door when I moved it into a Semi Hydroponic ‘deli container’. I have killed so many Phalaenopsis orchids over the 40 years I have been growing orchids, it is embarrassing. So once I was certain this one was a goner, and believe me, I know, I moved it into this pot and just waited. First thing that happened, the wilting, soft, drooping and wrinkly leaves, plumped back up, raised back into position and turned dark green and shiny. Then this.....the roots have started branching!!!!

Even an air root has a baby.
