Hello everyone, I am new on here and have already posted a few responses to other postings, but I bought an 'Epidendrum Mabel Kanda' from home depot which looks just like the picture posted of the rootbound plant. Mine has many pseudobulbs but the highest one is about 5 - 6 in. tall and still in the pot I bought it in but I havent had the best luck with that one. How has yours done so well and what have you done for it? Mine is just now starting to send out new growth but it doesnt grow very fast from what I saw and it likes to stay fairly dry and aired out from the culture I have tried. My plant grows pretty slowly for an epidendrum but I keep it because the flowers have a pink labellum and column tip with the sepals and petals a light green color and I like that color scheme. Is that what yours looked like when it was in bloom? Maybe mine is the same kind, but I have not been able to get info at all about parent plants. Advice for people who think about buying from home depot- dont do it. If anyone wants to talk about specifics my email is jerseykidd81@hotmail.com thanks

By this do you mean a regular orchid or clay pot that one can water but the water runs out right away so the roots don't stay too wet?

I am in a quandry about what to repot a similar epicyclia into so I am just doing a sort semi-water culture since I know they like to dry out. Thanks for any help on this....
