Burned root tips on my vanda?
Default Burned root tips on my vanda?

I got this vanda for my birthday, and I am pretty new to orchids. I was sick last week and totally spaced when I put her in water to soak for the daily 15 minutes down in south Florida, and didn’t remember until about 18-20 hours later. And now all her new growth and root tips are black... does anyone know what I should do?

well the most important thing is that you know why it happened. It doesn't sound or look like they got burnt (which happens from too much fertilizer).
It's a set back but in time it should start producing new roots again. I can see at least one active root tip still so just don't do it again.

There seem to be a lot of breaks in those roots - something that should be avoided.

This will be a bit self-serving, but get a bottle of KelpMax and soak the roots for about 15 minutes in a 1-ounce/gallon solution. Repeat in two weeks. You’ll have lots of new root tips in a few weeks.

Don't worry too much. 18-20 hours soaking isn't fatal. Something else may have damaged the root tips. It also looks like snail or thrips damage.

Are you growing indoors or outdoors? If outdoors it would be better to hang it up and water thoroughly every morning rather than by periodic soaking.
