    Sorry to be such a pessimisit, but those leaves doesn't look orchidish. Maybe a newly sprouted seedling of something else? I don't like the looks of those olive colored spots among the roots. That looks like mold and the fact it's growing there isn't good. What have you been doing with the plant? An orchid isn't dead until it's shriveled up and dried out dead. But I'm afraid that one is approaching it.

    Looks like a weed seedling to me too. The plant also looks quite wet, which is not good. The plant looks probably too far gone to rescue, and I would have taken it back to the seller after deteriorating so rapidly. The colour of the leaves in the latest pic is really brown and it looks virtually dead to me. Sorry not to be optimistic.

    It looks kind of like it has had a frost actually.

    Nope,no frost.There hasn't been frost here in Canada for months now.I did exactly what Rob-Rah told me to do.Put it in a baggie with the bark and don't water it.And this is what happened.And I kept it out of the sun so I wouldn't stew it,just like you said.So I wonder what's growing there then.I'm gonna save it and see [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I sent the nursery where I got it from an email and pic of the plant and she still hasn't gotten back to me on that,and I couldn't take it back cause the place is over an hour away and with these gas prices my mom didn't want to drive all the way out there,which is understandable.Oh well.~Niki~

    When ever you buy an orchid check that the roots arn't brown. And if mold,fungi or moss are growing on the bark repot it immediatly.

    Tre, I disagree with you on reppoting an orchid immediatly if you find moss on the surface, a much better option is to scrape away the moss from the bark or take off some of the bark pieces of the top that have moss on them and replace them with a few fresh pieces, reppoting would cause unnecersarry disturbance
