I have a large orchid that grew a keiki a few months ago. It was just leaves for a long time but now is starting to grow roots. It seems like it is killing the plant. It lost all of its main leaves and now the other stem is dying, along with the stem above the keiki. Is there any way to revive this plant?
My other orchid is in full bloom right now, but the stem above the bloom branch is dying. Is that normal? It had four branches of blooms when I bought it.
Finally, I rescued an orchid plant from a coworker's office which has been closed during Covid. It has gone through periods of severe drought, direct sun and overwatering. The leaves that are left are wrinkled and dull, but slightly better since I brought it home. It had root rot so I removed all of the dead roots and repotted it and put a dish of landscape rocks with water under it. It has not really made any progress in the month since I repotted it. Is there any hope for it?
