As far as the roots are concerned, they are light green in color and dark green when wet. And when it comes to leaves there is a wide variety among various orchids such as thin pencil like leaves and fleshy leaves and also there are varieties which have no leaves at all. But it is usually considered by experts that orchid plants with thick, lightly colored and hard leaves are healthy and you should select such plants. A slightly yellow green colored leaves that almost resemble green apple is to be the color of the leaves that you choose. What you should understand when you find leaves that are too glossy green is that the plant has likely been overfed and it will not bloom as well. Also, you should check if the leaves are free from bugs, obvious blemishes and mushy spots. Also, you should make sure that the growing point of the plant is not destroyed.
