Root porn!!
 
This Neobenthamia gracilis was slowly rising in its pot over time and now I know why. There is no media left and the roots had been expanding!! I have it potted in 50-50 peat-sand media in a clay pot.

I figure y'all would enjoy this :evil::evil:

Those masses of green and white tendrils are quite sexy. ;)

Nice!

When orchids grow roots like these plants do, they are virtually unstoppable. I love it.

Look at all those roots! **I like big roots and I cannot lie**

I have some root porn of my own:

A Phal next to the pot it USED to fit in, before I untangled the roots (not a single rotten one!)
