Double challenge

This plant is Bc Cynthia 'Pink Lady' HCC/AOS from Gold Country Orchids. It is described as having 5” delicate pink flowers on a compact plant that blooms twice a year and is very fragrant. I found a picture of it and it looks very nice.

Five months ago I started doing weekly maintenance in a nearby greenhouse in return for some space. One of the challenges was an infestation of Boisduval scale. This plant had the scale in addition to having very little root.

It has now been two months since it was cleaned and put in the hospital. One of the older roots has re-tipped, there is a new root emerging and an eye is activating. It is too soon for celebration, but it all looks very promising.
