Don't thru her out just yet. She looks health for the most part. What you can try is mounting her and have the kids spray her 2 to 3 times a day with a spray bottle. Take yourself a good size stick or piece of wood and hang her upside down on it. Use fishing cord or something to tie her on there with just a little bit of Spag around her root system and between the board or stick. Keep her in filtered light not direct light. If you have fish you can use some of the water also. Use a little fertilizer in the spray bottle about 2 weeks after you hang up upside down on the stick. Let the kids take turns helping you keep her misted not drenched.

If you bring home a stick from outside makes sure you sterilize it first before you place the orchid on it. You can boil the stick or microwave it or even stick in the over on a low temperature for a while. This kills anything that maybe growing on the stick that you don't want close to your orchids.

I hope this helps.
