I am a sucker for deals!! I found this purple Phalaenopsis Orchid on sale for $5.00. This Orchid is in pretty bad shape though and is another one with no name. The way I look at it is it looks bad now but what about later? With some good caring this Orchid will be beautiful again!!

As you can see in the first pictures the Purple Phalaenopsis Orchid was not even in the pot, it was just laying on top of the Orchid mix. The Flowers are not very healthy looking either, one is even shriveling up. One of the leaves has a big crease in it and another has had the tip cut off. This poor Orchid has been mistreated.

In the last three pictures I have re-potted the Orchid in a much better Orchid mix than it came in. I gave it a good watering and a little bit of food. Now the Purple Phalaenopsis Orchid sits on my filing cabinet in my office by the window. I will keep you posted on the progress of this Orchids rehabilitation.
