New to orchids would appreciate any info and where to buy nice orchids

I have a pink lady slipper that in the past has had up to 10 stems - this year I have only one.  Was it the winter in Minnesota with little snow ground cover that has caused the loss of the plant?

Sue,

from my little experience with orchids. They might need some humidity the rounded leave ones I picked up from lowes love the vivarium I have them in. their leaves were wimpy looking and the humidity perked them up nice. They even have new leaves growing.

Yvonne, I checked orchids on that site. there was one that looked like it just cut the leaves and put it in the bottom and then cut the flower stalks and added water.

The other container ones looked like they used the orchid bark mixture. 

Hope this helps.

Help- I just repotted my orchids with bark I purchased at a orchid show, now all the lower leaves seem to feel limp. Any suggestions?

i think I picked these up at 2 for $20 or $25. Hubby bought them for me at a orchid show.
