Home Depot has a two for one Orchid coupon for garden club members. I just picked up two Dens. that are grown in wood in a plastic pot.. Should I leave them in wood when I repot or should I seperate the roots from the wood. I guess I could wait for the wood to decompose but that may not be good. What is the best way to proceed?

I think it may be coconut husk and lasts forever comapred to wood.
I started by buying a few of those and the one that was potted in a coconut husk is the one that is definitely doing best growing better and more roots and canes

Here is the website for Kerry's Nursery, the source for many HD and Lowe's dens. It shows how they are planted in coconut husks.

Kerry's

I grow my orchids outside in the warmer 6 months of coastal North Carolina. I found that the dens did great the first summer. The second year not so good. By then the coconut husks had become soft and soggy, holding too much water.

Thanks Charlie: That is what I thought. I will repot when the husk gets soft.
