Saving a rotting Orchid – Cattleya with transport damage

Today we take care of my Cattleya orchid which was packed very wet, so many of the leaves and structures were very affected!
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼

First we need to repot this orchid, offer it fresh medium and a brand new pot, since the old moss were degraded and the pot was unusable. I prefer self watering pots for these orchids anyway, more details here

After the roots are cleaned, I remove all the affected leaves and new growths. I then spray the entire orchid with hydrogen peroxide 3%, which will disinfect my entire orchid.

Moss can be easily removed with tweezers, learn more here

I am also trying out Dragon’s Blood, I will let you know if it does at least as good of a job as cinnamon 🙂
