Just your run of the mill apartment gardener. Hoping to learn as much as I can here.

Just re-potted. The old pot (ceramic with a plastic cup holding the orchid) didn't allow for enough drainage. Flowers have begun to wilt and some browning is occuring. As soon as I brought it home, I changed it from the grocery store moss to orchid bark, but I figured the pot it was in was good enough. I was wrong. Luckily I only saw one root that had begun to rot and there a still plenty of healthy roots. Hoping for a quick recovery.

I could not pass on buying this Orchid last night. It was so inexpensive! My history with Orchids is not great, but I have learned a lot about gardening since then.
