What to do with drooping leaves?
Help! The leaves of my potted orchids are limp. Do not panic! This is usually because your orchid has been given too much water. It is better to water too little than too much. Look at the roots first. If they are nice and green, your orchid has enough water. Don't water anymore. If you see that the roots are turning a little grayer, this means that your orchid is too dry. It is best to immerse the orchid, plastic pot and all, in a bucket or sink filled with water. In winter, once every ten days will suffice. Leave the orchid like this for about fifteen minutes. The roots are now sucking themselves full of water. Let the plant drain well. Now the orchid can go back into the pot. This way your orchid will look beautiful again and you do not have to order a new one online.
