Hello from Northern Utah!
I have been collecting orchids for the past several years, but would hardly call myself an expert. I had 10 orchids up until 2 months ago, when I repotted them all. 2 of them died within the first 2 weeks. Most of the other 8 look like they are ok and even getting new leaves. I am glad to have found this forum and hope to find help with my orchid questions. I feel like I'm really out of my league here as I really know next to nothing....which is a good place to be. I hope to learn a lot!

Thanks all!
Sharonk

Welcome! You have come to the right place. There are lots of Forum contributors who love to help new growers. So please do ask questions! When you do, please tell us as much as you can about your growing conditions - light, temperature, how you water, what you have them potted in. Every bit of info will help you to get more accurate advice. If you are growing outside, knowing where you live helps too. And definitely upload photos (click on the Go Advanced button, scroll down just a bit to Manage Attachments, and you'll get a pop-up that lets you select files, then Upload before you post. The more that others can see what you are seeing, the better the advice, too. So again, Welcome!
