    The roots started to turn brown after a while since I repotted it . Idk what to do , maybe the soil is not good enough or I don’t know how to care for it . I would like some advice . Thanks

    Don't pot your orchids in potting soil, you need a airy yet moisture retentive mix that doesn't compact well, I would recommend using Orchiata bark Power grade.

    Another good medium is good quality sphagnum moss.
