    Well, it's not in terrible condition so I think you can recover it if you want to make the effort. Go for it!

    i agree, that doesn't look too bad, it should start pushing out roots in a few months
    So many plants...so little time

    Based on your pics, PD, your plant has a least a couple viable eyes/nodes. May take a while but definitely salvageable. I would remove the soft, papery sheaths (like the one by your thumb nail in the last pic). They should slide/peel right off in their present condition. Doing so may expose a couple other dormant nodes. With catts, exposing such nodes to light can act as a stimulous for them to being growing.

    Cool. I have already prepared a gallon ziplock with some lfs, soaked it for a couple of hours, wrung it out best as I could and put the plant it. Will remove the sheaths and monitor. Some of my orchids are sulking in the garage waiting for warmer weather, though a couple of Oncidiums could not seem to be happier. Another, Sharry Baby is slowly dropping leaves as they turn yellow.
