My Prosthechea cochleata coming out of its pot this morning. I planted this a couple of years ago in a very wide bulb pan but I guess it had to run out space some time...

Here is my Cymbidium Australian Midnight, one of my prized plants that I have grown out from a small seedling. I love the succulent foliage. Has not bloomed yet, can't wait!

This guy had lifted out of the pot about 1.5", when i unpotted I discovered why....

Gotta love Cymb root growth! I have several to divide and am dreading it. Time to get out the Sawsall...

I have some great root porn going on at my place. This is my Leptotes bicolor. It was in sphag, but you can't see it much anymore. The sphag stops about halfway down the root mass, and the rest is just a solid block of roots. I chucked it in a slightly larger pot about a month ago and it's happily filling the void with new roots. I water it every 1-2 days, just like a mount.

I was going to repot it in sphag in a clay pot, but at this point I'm not sure I want to mess with success!

That is beautiful! Don't mess with success... watering like it was a mounted plant is perfect... these don't particularly like media. That bit of sphag looks like it provides plenty of moisture, the roots love to run wild.
