Default Root porn!!

This Neobenthamia gracilis was slowly rising in its pot over time and now I know why. There is no media left and the roots had been expanding!! I have it potted in 50-50 peat-sand media in a clay pot.

I figure y'all would enjoy this

Those masses of green and white tendrils are quite sexy.

Adding my own submission because I like roots. my roots, your roots, wild roots, robust roots, all roots


Pretty pleased how much my aclandiae is enjoying the mount I put it on this past spring





And then there’s these two show offs that just want to let their roots all hang out
Dendrobium lamellatum




Dendrobium equitans

Nice!

When orchids grow roots like these plants do, they are virtually unstoppable. I love it.

Look at all those roots! **I like big roots and I cannot lie**

I have some root porn of my own:

A Phal next to the pot it USED to fit in, before I untangled the roots (not a single rotten one!)
