[A newbie to the orchid world]
After helping my landlord with a bit of decorating, i had found what looks like a moth orchid, which looked a right state. The flowers and flower stem had died, and the two main leaves are yellowy/green. I had originally had re-potted it in compost after trimming some of the roots, a [very small] amount of rooting compound, with normal baby bio drip feed. Even after a week, i had noticed the small central leaves had grown a little
After having a look round on the internet, i'd found i had done it all wrong, so went of to the garden centre, and with the help of one of the workers, got some proper soil and orchid baby bio. So hopefully [and with luck], it will grow.
I'm still concerned about the main leaves though. Any advice or guidance would be grateful, especially about watering.
