Answer: It's not unusual for orchids to produce aerial roots. These sometimes grow just above the soil surface, but sometimes they actually reach several inches above the soil. Orchids do lose leaves sometimes, and new leaves are produced. The yellowing leaves may be a sign of stress, or they may be just naturally dying down. As long as you're providing bright light, constant moisture, reasonable air circulation and high humidity, your orchid will thrive.
