Kent, United Kingdom
A friend thrust these two plants towards me with the words 'can you do anything with these?' Well, I think they are some sort of orchid, possibly Phalaenopsis? They were thick with dust and the compost was bone dry so I have cleaned the leaves and watered them. There doesn't seem to be much volume of compost in the pots so the water ran straight through. Both plants appear to have some green roots and a little new growth at the top. The only other thing I have done is to cut off a long dead flower spike which was on the larger plant.
Any information/advice to help me revive these plants would be very much appreciated.
