Default Cymbidium FiFi repot?

3 or 5 gallon bucket? Im thinking a metal washtub. One of those hempvana mesh grow bags? Its in a concrete planter I cant move around so its got to be a repot. 8 new bulbs and Im sure roots all over. Ive got to lighten it up for being mobile ya know



next to a 5 gallon bucket for perspective.



and since someone else has already claimed to inform us 1st if they ever get a warm growing cym to bloom I guess Ill be 2nd...

Can't advise on going larger... I whack mine down when they get above 2 gallons, can't lift them beyod that. If you wanted to divide this beast, get out the Sawzall...Then you have MORE of them!

Does have a fighting chance of bloomoing.... Fifi is half maddidum. Which also contributes to the bulk, however.

divide is not a bad idea. divide and conquer

I checked and there's 9 new bulbs could be split 4 and 5. in one year be back to where I'm at now...Maybe a quad split. Go ahead and plant it in wheelbarrow

thanks!!

The bag would work well with your humidity. I think the handles are sturdy.
