Should I repot these Catt hybrids?
Default Should I repot these Catt hybrids?

I got a couple catt hybrids from Hausermann several weeks ago. One small Blc Gulfshore's Beauty that is blooming size and one Slc Jewel Box about 2-3 years from blooming size. Both are in seedling pots (2.25" x 3.25" square).

I was planning to wait for spring, but now I am not so sure. I noticed that they are both just now starting to put out a bunch of roots even though we're entering autumn in the northern hemisphere. The Blc also looks to be starting a new cane. Perhaps it is time to repot now?

Neither of them are spilling over the edges of the pot just yet, but the bark mix seems a bit old. Certainly they are not freshly potted in this mix. Of course I have no way to know for sure when they were last repotted.

Any harm in just waiting? I do not know when the next "growing season" is likely to be, whether it is spring or next fall, etc.

And, if I do repot, do I put them back in the same pots if possible or go up a size, particularly for the immature Slc plant?

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

If they're making roots you can repot now In those tiny pots with only a few chunks of bark you could also wait until spring. Then be sure to behold your works and tremble.

Thanks, I did repot the Blc last night. The media at the bottom of the pot turned out to be in need of replacement. Probably best that I didn't wait.

I think the Slc I will leave for spring since it seems more fresh. I would like to go up a pot size for that one as well, but it isn't quite big enough to justify that yet.
