I just transplanted my orchid today from it being in the same 4" pot filled with moss for the past year. I planted in a 5" plastic orchid pot with slits in it, along with a nice fir bark mix and the roots look nice and green. I have 2 questions? First, what kind of food should I give it? NPK please? Also, what brand would you recommend?

Second: When transplanting, I noticed that there were one or two roots that had to be removed (mushy) Another one, the outer part came right off in my fingers but it left me with a thread (is that called "Vellum"? Should I have left that "thready' part or remove it. I left it!

As always, thanks so much for all your help.
