Question about health of an orchid

8 years ago
last modified: 8 years ago

My husband received an orchid as a gift back in July. It was a beauty - white, not sure what kind. It bloomed and bloomed and just lost it's last bloom about a month ago. He left it alone with the stems intact and we did ask at a nursery about how and when to cut it back for new bloom. He just brought it home last week and I could see where there are new stem buds? forming and I cut above those.

In the process, I noticed the roots are outside of the containers and look healthy but for the very tips of them are a different color. I don't know if that is the way they're supposed to be or not. Could someone look at these photos and tell whether they are or not? Thanks.
