#PhalaenopsisOrchid Discussion

Hello. The leaves on my orchid are droopy and look like theyโ€™re going to fall off soon. Please help.

Happy #freshleaffriday, everybody. Not only is Winston growing a new spike, it seems to be a big one. He is really weird. Should it be filled with flowers, this should be a(nother) good show. Also, in time for flf: my poor little Orchidom Nancy that lost its very first spike to the mites is not only growing her second spike slowly but steadily, but with a bit of luck it looks as though she even might bloom from her first spike after all. If I'm correct, she might branch out from the almost destroyed node ๐Ÿคž also, all those that got their mite reprieve for now, thank me with faster growth (in spite of the now depressingly low humidity), which is in itself great. #plantsmakepeoplehappy #newgrowth

Spike๐Ÿค—๐Ÿซข๐Ÿฅณ Vs. or air root๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿซก

My Bella has root rot from pot it came in . I cut off the bad roots, and sprayed the affected stem part that had the rot with Neem Oil, and repotted the plant in a plastic pot with holes & orchid soil. Anything else I should do? Should I cut the flowers?

Bloomless Orchids

To anyone hesitant to cut the spike of a phalaenopsis, be it because of health concerns, overblooming or even just because you want to give the plant a longer vegetative period: I present to you: Winston's spike. I cut it well over a month ago (going on 6 weeks I would guess). Because at this point, he had already been blooming for several months already. During a very very stressful repot while in bloom. If I had left the spike on the plant, it would probably still have been as strong as on the first day. (Sadly to the detriment of the overall health). But just look at that: 6 weeks in a vase. And by no means fresh and young at the starting point. I've said it before, I will say it again: Winston is a beast! And also: do not hesitate to cut the spike of necessary. Many can keep a long time in a vase as well. #phalaenopsisorchid #orchidlovers
