White dots on Phal roots! Male
Question White dots on Phal roots!

Hi,

I re-poted my Phalaenopsis over the weekend and could not help noticing some strange white dots on the roots.

Any ideas and suggestions?

Normal, healthy, mature roots. No cause for concern

Echoing everybody before...

It is normal. They are part of the orchid's natural root anatomical structures.
