I agree, many orchids (almost all) could be saved with the sphagnum method , however, the cut should be dusted with sulphur or painted with dragon blood to sterilize the woundYou can certainly TRY to save it. I've saved a couple by potting in long fibered
sphagnum moss until new roots develop.
I had to cut off brown mushy part. I soaked in thyomil/diathane solution to seal cut and prevent spread of rot. I am hoping it will put out healthy roots now.My main question is, at the cut should it be soft green tissue or hard brown like it is? Is it dead or can it be saved?
