Hi, I got this orchid from my friend, she wanted to through it in the garbage, but I decided to do everything to save it. When I brought it home I found out that orchid's roots are all rotten. I cut, clean everything, and left only 2 (they are not in good condition also). Leaves were eaten by mites, I catch a few of them on the plant, and I cut places that were eaten by mites. For two weeks orchid was placed in the moss. Every two days I find mites net on the roots, I start over with cleaning and disinfecting the plant. Today, I found some new growth in two places. One is probably root (a little bump next to the one of the roots). The other one is growing on the place of dead leaf. Does anyone can say whether it is a new roots or a spikes. In case it is a spike, what should I do: let it be or prune it? I'm afraid that poor plant doesn't have enough power to flower. I got different information on that matter and I will appreciate your opinions.
