Green thumbin' it - The Rescued Orchid

My beautiful little stray is doing so well. She did lose a bunch more leaves and a handful of her damaged roots, but she is thriving. Last week, I saw that she'd started a new leaf, and it was just a sliver of a bud nestled in her crown. Now, it actually looks like a little leaf.

Had to reseat her in her pot, because with all the leaves she lost, the big ones made her top heavy. Haven't trimmed any of the dead roots, but I noticed that her main root has a little sprout on it. Huzzah!

If she grows at all like my other big phael, I'll probably have blooms closer to fall.
