Bad purchase at orchid festival

8 years ago

This morning at 10 am I was at a local orchid festival and made a bad purchase.I'm in my encyclia phase at the moment and saw these pretty flowers and went for it.It was the olny one going for $20.00.I noticed some of the leaves were bent so the vendor took off $2.00.When I got home and examined my purchases I realized how ratty the orchid looked,like it had been through WWII and has dark green moss all over the bark and pseudo bulbs.Of course when I walked around the festival
I saw healthier versions of the same orchid.

I'd like to know should I repot it or just clean it up a bit until the flowers fall off?The only good thing I could say about this orchid is it's well established with 7 Pseudo bulbs and a new one coming up.

As usual your advice is appreciated, thanks.
