Should I worry?

Hi all senior

Just starting to grow orchids as hobby. I had transferred my Phal into s/h last week. Today, I noticed the aerial roots already dry like prune but those roots in leca are in fat green colour. I have yet water the plant as there is water in reservoir. Should I need to do something?

Hi Luohan,
I'm newbie myself. It's really hard to get answers in this site because I think most members went through all the horrible experience in killing Orchids, that's how people learn.
Try search online and learn from mistake that's the only answer I can give. I know how it feels and you are not alone.

That's not why people haven't responded. I think it's rude of you to make this assumption. A lot of good growers on this site and the right one will come with patience.

You get aerial roots because they are searching with moisture. So I don't think aerial roots are too important. I have many Phals that don't put out aerial roots. Did you 'tuck' in the roots when you repotted it? Sometimes that's hard to do and I give up on them.

So as long as the main roots aren't rotten and they are a nice green you are on the right track. I think just be patient and things sounds like they are improving. There are a lot of resources in this site and others online.

I grow my Phals in Sphagnum Moss but semi hydro is ok as well.

So far you have been very helpful and I meant only you Bolero. My statement wasn't pointed at you, my apology if you felt that way. I'm a newbie aswell, you can easily view through my past post how people responded to me, started from my first post?
Does a newbie started a first post deserve to be accused of stealing wild orchids from the jungle?

No they don't deserve to be accused of it if they haven't done anything wrong.

I just assumed you were commenting on everyone in this forum.

I think most people here try to be very helpful.

Iím relatively a newbie I have repotted 3 of my phals with success. Iíve lost some aerial roots and some are still going good after repot. When I was researching on how to repot a phal I remember it was explained to leave aerial roots aerial. I also learned that one can say a phal by just one aerial root. The actual root is very thin and has a protective outer part that can shrivel up but in no way dead. I was terrified the first repot. Good luck...birdbrain
