I live in Melb and love getting out in the garden, seeing splashes of colour In flowers and leaves is what I find fascinating!

@Christos I was talking to Bill about his orchid can you tell me if you treat phalaenpsis orchids the same as cymbidium orchids? I have two of the phalaenpsis orchids they are in very small containers and have long root like bits come our of the top. I was wondering should I plant them in slightly bigger pots with the same orchid mix and should I bury the root like bits in the potting mixture ? Regards Dee

@dee3 If your Phalaenopsis are not in bloom you can repot them in bigger pots but not in orchid mix. Better is a mix with bark and a tiny amoun of sphagnum moss.

@dee3 If it is possible yes. Sometimes the aerial roots are really hard and if you try to work work with them might be broke.
