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.
