Here I'm showing you what I did to save some phalaenopsis orchids that had no roots. I was told about the "Spag & Bag" method but I never found a video or instructions on how to do it; so, with the little info I found and a little bit of imagination I put all this things together and it works perfect!
My orchids are close to a south facing window but they never get touched by the sun, I don't want to burn them!
The orchids are tied up to a bamboo stick inside a clear plastic cup that has some wet sphagnum moss on the bottom (the plant don't touch the moss), the cup is sitting on a plate with gravel and filled up with water. the whole thing is covered with a plastic bag. If you give them the proper conditions of warmth and humidity, expect new roots in less than 2 weeks.
Refill the plate/saucer with water as needed, add water to the moss also if it's needed. but since it's covered with the plastic bag, it's gonna take some time for the water to evaporate. keep an eye on that.
I hope this video can help you.
Thank you all! :)
