Talkback: How to care for orchids

Posted: 08/02/2013 at 18:55
Anyone got any idea where to put a sick orchid? I bort it at Christmas in its plastic bag and when I got it home and removed it from its packaging the orchid had been sweating and it's leaves were soggy.. I should have taken it back but I didn't..
All it's flowers fell off and I ended up having to cut off sickly leaves which were going a funny colour and rotting.
I am left with two big leaves which I think are getting paler by the day.
I am reluctant to put it in a bin incase I can revive it. I have not put it on my window ledge which is shaded by a light net. Felt it still might be too light for it at the moment, I have now moved it into the kitchen which is the warmest place especially during the night.
Any ideas?

I have got to repot a few of my orchids, the compost has broken down and also the orchids are outgrowing their pots. Am going to try the big one in a clay pot and the smaller one in a clear pot.
Have got the proper compost but am going to put a little charcoal in them. I am looking forward to doing this because it is a bit of a challenge. Have enjoyed your video Sarah, I also looked at some on you tube. All has been very helpful. Thank you.
