I pruned my orchid roots and it got worse. It has two leaves left and I think it's dying, what should I do?

Don't cut anything unless you know what you're doing.
Any pics? It would help...

Default thanks for helping

Unfortunately, I looked at the pruning videos and cut off a few roots. Afterwards, my orchid's leaves became strange. did not bloom and the leaves are wrinkled

Please post some pics...just by looking at the plant we can conclude several things.
You will be also useful to know your growing conditions: temperatures (max & min), humidity, light (full sun, shade, full shade, etc), growing location (window? If so, what is the orientation...north, south, etc), medium inside the pot, watering frequency.

All these parameters are major factors for successful growing.

It would help to know what kind of orchid it is. Does it have a name tag? Do you know what kind it is? Some people need to make 5 posts before they're allowed to post photos. Photo instructions are in About This Forum available in the left yellow menu, Forums.

In general, I never cut orchid roots. It's usually impossible to know which are alive and which are dead without a microscope. Dry brown roots can still function to absorb water.

I replied in a hurry and didn't even noticed that this crucial info was missing.
