Back to my roots! Male
Default Back to my roots!

I bought two Cymbidiums from Burnham Orchids as part of their 5 for £20 offer: ‘Parnasse’ and ‘Bartolme Ferrello’. Checking my plants today I could feel that the 9cm pots they were in were being distorted by roots so I decided to repot them. I only managed the ‘Parnasse’ because I’ve run out of small bark.

But this was the sight that met my eyes when I eased the plant from its pot. The roots were all healthy when I got the old medium off, even right under the crown. I can only hope the other will be as healthy when I repot it.
