Hi all, I've never had an orchid, so I need some quick help! My dad brought home a plant from a friend monday (3 days ago) and it's been sitting in the dark laundry room since! I'm wondering if anyone knows what type of orchid this is. My dad obtained it from someone who swears that you use regular potting soil, he has some 'growing wild' in his backyard. It's supposedly a small purple flower, shaped like star jasmine. I was under the impression that orchid mix would normally be the protocol? I need to pot this poor thing fast, I'm so afraid it's going to croak!
Thanks in advance! *[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
