A lot going on here. In this picture 6 new roots at the same time and on the back of the plant another 4.

Not a crazy amount of roots, but roots going crazy on this Neofinetia (Vanda) falcata Shutenno Pink.

Maxillaria variabilis

Got it this way from the nursery. Repotted it right away. I wanted to use a skewer, couldn't get it in the bark or what ever mix was used. It's one solid mass of roots.
I left the roots alone and only used a bigger pot with a mix that works for me (= bark with some sphagnum).

How about some mini representation? A couple mounted seedlings of Dendrobium cyanocentrum. I also just gave them a KelPak bath so they may be making even more soon.. Cant wait for these blooms. I actually don't know what form they are!

Phalaenopsis philippinensis has taken advantage of its freedom, roots have wrapped all around the 2ft cube aquarium and have filled up the false bottom. Hopefully I never need to move it

it hasnt bloomed so I guess its not blooming sized yet. 8 new growths this year so there is opportunity. To trim the plant, I cut off a few back bulbs. It grew 2 more new ones.

I just put it back into the clay pot and let it do what its doing. Going to be a nice houseplant pretty soon
