Hi all,

I was checking out some orchids at my grocery store. Thought I'd ask about a couple I saw. These were $4 USD. Not sure what kind they were though or if they looked in salvageable condition. Thoughts?

Also, is this Phal dyed?

Yes, the Phal is dyed. Next bloom cycle the flowers will be white. The Dendrobium is not in real good condition but salvageable. $4.00 is fair. Welcome to the Orchid Forum.

I always pull them out of the decorative pot and look for alive roots. Smiling
