cut off roots
my orchid was beautiful..it is in the clear plastic pot(3-4"), I balanced it in a square glass container and it had wonderful light and air. it was like suspended above the bottom of the square container so there was good drainage. I purchased a larger pot to put it in to hide the roots and it started to fade. flowers fell off and the top roots browned. so..i took it out of it's container and cut the entire pack of roots off at the base of the leaves leaving 1/2" of the base. the roots were bad. I put it back into the same container with 1/2" medium, then the plant and then refilled the rest of the medium around the plant. I think it may not make it because this was brutal, but there is one or 2 other roots. what do you think? did I kill the orchid? thank you
the leaves are still rich dark green. and oh, I also cut down the flower stems to the first node by the leaves.?
