    so about two weeks ago i got a Laelia fournieri from Miranda Orchids, well, Francisco Miranda who spoke at my society and i bought it from him.
    to make a longer story shorter, i forgot about it and left it in my jacket pocket until today.
    it looks kinda crappy and dehydrated. i don't think it had an extreme temperatures so i potted it up.
    is it just gonna die? any suggestions about potted vs mounted? potting media?
    anyone wanna call me a turkey for forgetting about it?
    thanks.....

    Turkey wasn't the first thing that came to my mind :poke:

    I personally have all my Laelia planted in lava rock. I like the inert media because I do not have to worry about repotting unless they out grow the pots.

    It'll be fine. If you send it to me, that is. You're welcome.

    It'll be fine. Clay pot & lava or granite rock.
    Then you need patience!
