Barkeria lindleyana - it used to be mounted, but eventually the mount just disintegrated. I picked out the pieces, and the roots were in such a tight mass that I couldn't see an easy way to get another one to have any use. So I just put a zip tie through the mass of roots to have something to attach a hanger to, and it has continued to grow, bloom, make new growths. Barkerias don't seem to get particularly intimate with mounts. I have also placed them in plastic baskets with no medium, again just to have a way to hang them. Put them in pots, they die. After blooming, leaves are lost, the spike eventually dries up but I have learned (the hard way) not to cut it - the following year when the new growth and new spikes are established, I snap off the brittle part. But the old, leafless canes are the closest thing that it has to pseudobulbs, look dead but they aren't.

Roberta can probably tell you what genera this orchid is by the fat fleshy roots.
The roots pushed the plant up and blew out the side of its plastic pot.

A Cymbidium of course... but I'm cheating, the string of photos of which this is a part does identify it as such. So no mystery there...

But there aren't a lot of orchids that break a 1 gallon (4 l) pot in just a year. Yes you CAN grow - and also bloom - Cymbidiums in south Florida... you just have to have the right Cymbidiums for the environment.

?? I've never posted a photo of this plant. ??
Maybe you're thinking of Dirtycoconuts' plant. The root masses have a similar appearance, and both broke their pots.

Did look the same as DC's photo. Sorry. Other Cymbidae such as Gramatophyllum likely can do that too. I am sure there are others... hint, don't put that one in the bedroom, it could grab you by the neck when you are asleep!

When watering in the greenhouse today, this plant (Rth. Psycho Bride) suddenly reminded me of this thread.
