    I wouldn't fertilize a stressed orchid. If the root growth point looks good, the rest of the plant probably isn't doing too badly. And maybe they're supposed to look like that.

    The ghost orchids need to be in HIGH humidity. I know people that grow them on a piece of stainless steal mesh, and then take a milk jug and cut a window of sorts in it then hang the orchid in there with water standing below it. Do not have it in the water. The jug helps it maintain high humidity. If you have a tererrium with high humidity thats even better. Good light,m but not full sun. They grow in the swamps of Fla normaly hanging over thw water where humidity is high. Thats all I can give you as I haven;t even tried to grow one yet. Thats just from reading on another site.
