Hey everyone! Ok, here's the deal... I rescued this poor orchid from a rack at our local K-mart that is going out of business, god knows how long it has been sitting there in neglect, but it still looks ok, just one dead leaf, the lowest one. There are three main stocks, one has flowers, so I am taking this as a sign that it is still in at least decent health. I need to know the following...
1. Does anyone know what variety this may be, like what do stores like this usually put out? It's the same type I always see at stores in my area (Eastern Washington). So I would just like to know some types to look for on the internet to compare it to.
2. Second, I need to know how on earth to take care of this poor thing. I know Orchids need way different care than all my Neps, at least I think so, this is why I am checking. I have never owned an Orchid, just always thought they were gorgeous.
That's pretty much it for now. I need to know how I should go about re-potting it and all that jazz. Is there anything special I need to tend to right away...HOW SHOULD I WATER IT Please, someone with good knowledge, I very much appreciate tips on this.
