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.

Though my orchid still isn't fully standing tall, hubby was able to get me a decent picture of it.

Very pretty orchid Pat. Yes, I agree they do teach us patience. Robin, I can't wait until I see your orchid too!

Oh that is even better. I love it when a plant has a fond memory to go with it.

Happy Anniversary!
