Phalaenopsis gigantea growing roots

Phalaenopsis gigantea seedling

     When I last updated about my Phal gigantea in September, it had just finished growing a new leaf.  In the 3+ months since, not much new has happened above the surface.  Instead, the phal has put out a number of new roots.  Two are aerial roots growing out side the put, but it also looks like there are a number of new roots under the media as well.

     Hopefully these new roots will have helped the orchid survive these last 2.5 weeks without any watering.  I return home tomorrow, so my next update will show how my orchids fared.  I hope everything is ok.
