I have been trying to keep a golden shower orchid alive. And each week it would lose another section. It was down to it's last one and I was reconciled to loosing it when a miracle occurred. Well, ok maybe it wasn't a miracle. But guess what! It has two tiny baby leaves comming up. I am thrilled. I mist it at least twice a day and it has paid off. The root system has recovered.

that type of orchid definitely needs daily misting!!! i got one in trade and it didn't make it - i wasn't misting it enough.

good luck with it and post pics when you can! [Smile]

Thanks Joclyn,

I'm just so happy that it decided to grow. And I will definitely keep misting it. And if I get an opportunity to get a picture I will definitely post it.
