: I am trying to nurse back to health two orchids that I have inerited. One was leftin a car for a couple of hours and got too hot. One was left in standing water too long. They have both lost thier blooms and some of their leaves. I cut them back and am keeping moist and well drained. What else can I do? They seem doomed. Will milk help?

It would help if we knew what TYPE of orchid they are. Dendrobiums (they have long canes) like to go dry bewteen waterings and Phals (long strap like leaves that hover just over the top of the pot) like to stay a bit moist but not really wet.

Sometimes milk is used to clean/shine leaves, it won't really help for much of anything else. I wouldn't waste my time on adding milk. Tom
