Given a sad Orchid....
My mother in law gave me this sad Orchid. I literally know nothing about Orchids. Leave are drooped and one is crispy yellow. Roots are coming out of holes in the pot. Any tips?

    Janine G I mean the stringy roots that are showing in the picture. Should they be UNDER the soil? I know NOTHING about these. I work with a guy who has been growing them for about 20 years and he said to repot it immediately in a good bark and fertilize it too. I assume those stringy things showing are roots?

      Pei Those are aerial roots that jut naturally hang out above the soil. And I agreed with the guy about repotting!

    Pei Hi [291073,Janine G] your orchids look very thirsty. You could tell by the wrinkled leaves. I would suggest to remove the yellow leaf by snipping it off as close to the base as possible. With Orchid, you want to put it in aa bright-lit environment. Water once a week and spritz occasionally to help humidity.

    About the roots, i can't really tell from this photo. What do you mean by it's coming out?
