    Question

    Thanks George,
    Looks like I'm off to Home Depot tomorrow evening! Can I leave out the charcol? I don't think I've seen it at my local Home Depot...

    If humidity is high and the plant is kept moist but yet the leaves are wilted or shrivelled or in any way look like they are lacking water then there is a problem with the roots.

    Sounds like it never established properly for you. Perhaps it was too wet or perhaps got a disease at the roots.

    home depot does have a bag that has the orchid bark,charcol already mixed together but if they don't go ahead and leave it out if ya can't find it.

    also like Tony said it could of gotten a fungis or the roots didn't get established

    when you do repot it leave the mix that is around the roots already so lesson the stress of the plant

    Thanks for all your help guys! I will check the roots (to make sure they are still there), and if neseccary (can't spell), treat with fungicide.

    If Superthrive does all it claims to do, it should have a benneficial effect on the plant, especially when transplanting.
    I would be shocked if your Home Depot does not have horticultural charcoal. I have seen it at everyone I have been to, from California, to Denver, to Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska. Like CP George said(I hope it was him), they probably ahve a orchid mix also that has bark,charcoal and maybe perlite. Mix that with your L/F/S ,and that should be a ood mix.

    Regards,

    Joe

    One of the ways fungus acts is to plug up the "veins" of a plant with the mycelea, or "roots" of the fungus, so the plant looks like it's drying up.

    Sounds like a fungal disease. When you say withered, does it look like drying up?[/QUOTE]
