Tell us about the nautical-themed pot?

Do you actually eat gingerbread, or did you buy it for the jar?

You didn't realize that nautical themed pots cause explosive root growth?! I thought everyone knew that!

jk

I honestly don't know how it got painted. I think I grabbed some used pots from someone and it was painted!

I needed to repot my one and only Cymbidium and found this in the pot. No wonder water was having a tough time penetrating!!

Come on estación seca! You know me better... that's a Gingerbread scent candle jar, of course.

Steve, you need to re-examine your repotting schedule. Catasetum aren't the only ones that require an occasional repot.

I honestly don't know! Looked like a wall of roots, so I just plunked it into a larger pot with media.

I know this thread is about huge sprawling roots and I have plenty of those (although nothing like some of the pictures on here) but I will be showing a completely different root for personal reasons because although this will just look like any old root to everyone else, some of you will know how much just a simple root on a dying orchid can mean.
This orchid hasn't been dying but as I have discovered a cymbidium has no problem completely filling a pot with roots in just one growing season, this one has not produced a single new root in ..... 2 years and today I finally discovered not just a root but a root the size of the stem, you can see the state of the old 2+ year roots and that this one desperately needed to get going but it's been a long journey with this one and this is just the start lol.

Oh yeah you need to look real closely, inbetween the leaves! I know, nothing to look at but sentimental root

SF, I totally relate. I have an Aerides houlletiana behaving like that... just sat there for more than a year, suddenly put out a big, fat root (almost as thick as the stem) and is just starting to put out new growth at the crown. Cherish all roots! From the root machines and the survivors! Where there are roots, can flowers be far behind?
