Orchids

Received an orchid from a friend who passed. It’s in rough shape but remember how beautiful it was. Purchased orchid mix and trimmed dead roots. Do I add a wooden dowel for flower support ?

You can, but I would not trim the dead growth off unless it is completely dry. This can set it back quite a bit. This article will help with the care of orchids: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/orchids/indoor-orchid-care.htm
