I have an orchid that I believe I over watered. It lost all it's leaves, I tried to transplant it and the stems started to soften and rot. I put it outside in the shade and left it. Now it has a new shoot growing off one of the soft rotted stems. The leaves look like they have small white roots on it. How can I transplant this? Or do I just leave it on the rotted stem? Which stinks by the way.

Orchids are tender and tend to be fickle. They are actually a parasite and do not live on their own. Check your local library and see if any books are specifically about orchids. People seem to all have different opinions. (07/13/2009)
