    Orchids

    While watering my orchids I snapped one of the stems. It's hanging on by a thread and is in bloom. Is there a way to graft it together or is it a lost cause? Thanks!

    Good question I'm not really sure.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    I have good luck splinting broken stalks and stems with a wrap that can be kept a little damp. Like maybe gauze inside of cling wrap.Tie a splint on either side of the stalk, as tightly as you can without indenting the stalk. Don't worry for a few days about the stalk growing bigger in diameter. Then loosen it a little if it looks like the plant is saved.

    Even if the stalk doesn't heal, maybe you can keep the plant healthy until it's finished blooming.
