Sorry i know it's in German, but could someone please advise me if this is even the right way to repot the Phal.

I have a few of my phal that would require to repot but there's no way i can find bigger pot cause their root is really long. Now Can i even cut out the stem like she mention?

By "cut out the stem", I assume you mean cutting off the bottom section of the plant with all of those live roots. Yes, that it is how it is done. That allows the new roots in the top growing section to establish themselves in the fresh media. You can also trim any long roots as needed to fit into the new pot. My german is quite rusty and I didn't watch part 2, but I presume she cuts the old spike long to have something to attach to the stake to stabilize the plant in the new pot.

I never get rid of live roots. I find that my plants establish faster with the least damage to the roots possible and staking orchids helps to minimize damage after repotting. However, I have never tried this so I can't judge this method.

This is an scary proposition. I don't know if I would have a heart to butcher it like this.

Why would you ever cut off all those healthy roots or cut off the growing tips of roots? And, now the plant is overpotted.

Someone needs to revoke her orchid card.

I have cut off long roots before when repotting because I couldn't fit them in a pot and the plants are fine. But those were Catts that were growing new roots from the new lead. I haven't don't that to a Phal before. But I only have 2 Phals. However if the plant is healthy and is actively growing it shouldn't hurt it. I find a lot of the time some of the old roots end up dying anyways after repotting. If you have to cut some roots maybe try it with one plant then if that plant does okay repot the other the same way. It's not unheard of to cut off some healthy roots.

I don't know. That video really made me cringe. Let's recap. She tore off still-healthy lower leaves, the lower stem with the bulk of the good green roots, and then further trimmed the remaining roots. Ouch!

It is a horror movie for orchids, something you show them if they refuse to bloom.
