I was given a gift orchid with a 30" high spike of small marroon and purplish flowers on June 2nd. In one month I have succeeded in nearly killing the poor thing. I had it on the mantle (warm shade)and all the flowers have been shedding. One of its several clusters of new leaves was soggy and I pulled it off. I took the plant down and found it was sitting in a pool of water in its wooden dish. What should I do besides let it drain? Feed it? Prune it? Give it more sun? And what type of orchid is this anyway? Any and all help would be appreciated.
