Here's my mini phal that has been in water culture for about 2 years. Bloomed for me twice.

Try again after a few posts. I think thereís a spam security measure that doesnít permit picture posting until after a certain number of posts.

Or the image file is too large? You can try resizing it and post again. Alternatively, you can upload the photo here (no account necessary): ImgBB ó Upload Image ó Free Image Hosting and then paste into a post the bbcode it generates. Works well, and other people on OB use that.

Love this thread, and would love even more the accompanying thread (for those growing in pots) how you re-pot these guys!!!

Not very easily! With my Phal (posted earlier), I soaked the roots, got a larger pot, carefully wound the roots into some sort of form that would go into the pot, and then used a blunt bamboo skewer to poke and proke bark chips down between all the roots...

Here are a couple of pictures of those beloved roots
Photo 1,2 hybrid dendrobium, no medium, just hanging on a wire
Photo 3 cattleya roots, what happens when you donít move your plants from time to time. And it is time to repot.

I use orchiata bark so my plants usually outgrow the pot before the media breaks down, so I usually just take the existing pot, throw it in a larger pot, and add media.
