    Got some new orchids..

    Hi guys!!!... I just received some 5 tolumnias and 1 oncidium.. The tolumnias are in a 1 inch pot with no media....As I live in South India with tropical climate ... I think they are very dehydrated.... The problem with the tolumnias is that that crown is at the bottom of the net pot... So I couldn't dunk it without it getting wet. The oncidium is also dehydrated ... I have soaked it for about 10 minutes yesterday... But I see no improvement..It is in bark media by the way...

    Please see whether these tolumnias are healthy




    This is the oncidium golden yellow

    You can dunk/soak the Tolumnias for 10 minutes. Just do it in the morning and make sure there is enough air movement to dry the tops and the roots quickly.
