Hello everyone.

Iím wondering if I should repot Cymbidium Maureen Green (Green Maureen x ensiflolium (alba)) because the roots are coming out from the bottom now.

I received this last year, repotted it then.
Growing in bark/lava rock/moss. Temp around 28 c day, 17 night under red/purple grow light, humidity 50-70 in a portable plastic greenhouse. Two growths this winter, another one coming out.

Thank you for any advice.

I would leave it...but I'm lazy.
They like to be potbound.

You could probably go another year... I have found that Cyms bloom best just before they break the pot. Don't worry about roots coming out the bottom - it looks like you have an arrangement to give them some "running room". For when you DO repot, consider looking for the tall-form Cymbidium pots - I have found that Cyms love the extra room to grow their roots vertically (and makes repotting a whole lot easier than when they wind around)

Thank you for your advice. Iíll wait till next year to repot.

I hope it fills the pot up with bulbs and roots and break the pot this year, which means they might bloom soon. Yay! In the meantime, Iíll also find a tall skinny pot with holes and legs for it for next year. Thank you.

Hi everyone

I hope that you are all having a good summer.

My Cymbidium Green Maureen bloomed with three spikes this year for the first time. I bought it last year. The fragrance is very nice- I love it. I thought to share.

Thanks for all of your advice.
