Yes, use a clear pot (I've seen them in Homebase) and an orchid potting mix which is just bits of bark and similar stuff.  


Cut the old brown stalk off down low and tuck those two new aerial roots into the new pot.  (They might not choose to stay there ... if they want to wander about out of the pot that's ok too)


Give it a soak after re-potting then let it drain.  Don't let it stand in water.


The roots will turn green when it's been watered ... don't water again until they've lost their green colour.


You can give it a few drops of Baby Bio Orchid Food as directed on the bottle.  Keep it on a north facing windowsill and keep the air fairly humid ... fortunately our bathroom has a north facing window.

I think they were just called 'Red Cherry'.  They definitely weren't Gardener's Delight.

DANGER!!!

Long sleeves and gloves ... I've never suffered any ill effects from pulling them up and putting them in a bin or letting them dry out and burning them.

Thank you Pat ((hugs))  


Your son has a cat who is very precious to him ... my son has one as well ... they've been together through thick and thin and son has found it very hard to find a place to rent that will accept the cat ... thankfully this place belonging to friends has just become available
