If the "roots" you speak of are green and growing above the soil let then grow where they are.  They are called "air roots" and don't want to be in the soil.

Sounds like you're doing well.

I have managed thus far to keep my orchids alive. They are growing well . I can see new roots growing in the pots.

well my last orchid didn't make it :-(  i did learn a few things about them tho during the process of killing that one.. i have now purchased 3 more and giving it another try .....

I currently have 30 orchids, all very happy...most in bloom most of the time and would never add ice to them!

Sorry---  the "Add ice" thing is at best a marketing ploy.  Orchids are tropical plants and are shocked by ice.  NOT a good way to water.  Orchids ARE easy to grow, but read up a little more and water properly.  They'll thank you for it!

I have never heard of a ghost orchid, any photos?

Comment by Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI on February 4, 2013 at 12:59pm

I had to google that one.  They are beautiful but of course won't grow in WI.  It sounds as though they're pretty fussy to grow inside, too.  I'll have to ask my "Orchid Lady" about them.

"Ghost Orchid"  These were all the rage down here a few years back.  Somewhat difficult to find in the wild and I've never seen one in cultivation ... have you?
