Why yes they are and i was curious about whether they needed to be covered up . Thank you for that information. I bought these on clearance at lowes and they werent in the greatest condition. But they are growing new leaves and growing thise roots up. I researched today and found that I should cut the old stem off. I will do that tomorrow. I have had these since september.

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.

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.
