Bent Phalaenopsis Stem - Please help
Hello, I am new to the forum. I just purchased a beautiful large Phalaenopsis orchid from my local flower shop. When I got home I noticed that the stem was pretty severely bent near the top. The stem is definitely weaker where the bent is located and some of the exterior on the stem is frayed but it is not completely broken through. I now have clipped the stem to a support rod near the bend. This is a mothers day gift and I would hate for it to die. Is there any hope for this plant? Or anything else I can do.
I figured if there was anywhere I can get an answer to this, it would be here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
