I was in the hospital for a month and no one knew what to do with my plants. I am home now and have a lot of very dry paphs. Any ideas for saving them? Thr roots are dry, the leaves are limp. They are potted in a fine bark with a small amount of moss. I have limitations use of one arm and hand now as I had 2 strokes. So any repotting or changing setup is difficult for me. Will just soaking them help? Thanks
I would soak them with some sort of seaweed kelp extract and most will probably be fine.
Thanks to everyone who replied to my post about saving really dry paphs. Here are a couple of photos of 2 representative plants. Just to show you the condition they are in
