Reviving A Lost Orchid

March 28, 2009: This is the orchid that my mom-in-law bought years and years ago.  Problem is, it was not taken cared of when she left for the States.  I will try to revive this plant and see if I can make it bloom.  My first step was to place the plant in running water for 15 minutes.  I wanted to use fresh charcoal, but the roots were firmly attached to the pot.  I opted to just place fresh new ones to fill the container and placed in a spot that is free from direct sunlight.  The aluminum tray is filled with water and the container is suspended on a bed of charcoal.  This is to give a humid environment that will help the plant to revive itself.
