You're welcome. I am the same way. I like to see visual step by steps too. When I attempt to do some new gardening task that is new to me, I try to remember to photograph the steps just in case it may have interest to others with a similar situation or puzzle to solve. Thanks again for your interest and for the kind words.

Default Brassia Edvah Loo ‘Nashida‘ wooden basket repotted

So, this time it was my Brassia Edvah Loo ‘Nashida’ that was set to into a larger wooden basket. Makes for a very heavy basket. I needed to be careful as this plant was blooming at the time, roots were not disturbed, however.

Thank you!!

What is so weird is that I have this plant for over 4 years and it never bloomed. Then I started a new job 400 miles away from home in winter this year and could not take my orchids. Anyhow, relatives kindly cared for my plants but I almost lost my entire orchid collection in 3 months from lack of water. With Covid travel I couldn’t travel home. The weird thing is that brassia was neglected enough to be happy and bloom. Go figure...

Aha! You have found the secret, fear works... a little stress convinces the plant that it had better hurry up and reproduce. If things are too ideal, they can get lazy and do a lot of roots and leaves.

Maybe it's just still embedded somewhere inside the bark pieces inside the basket somewhere!

Thank you Roberta! That makes sense to me and I will remember that. I had to drive back just as it was opening blooms and was never able to experience the fragrance of the flowers. I hear they are very fragrant. Oh well, will have to catch it after the next stress event flowering.

Default A year later - Orchid roots *attacking* my baskets again.

Cattleya Orchid roots *attacking* my baskets again. I know, I know...being facetious . It’s been a year since that first re-basketing project. As you can see from 2nd photo below the roots have descended down to the new outer basket. My hope was that the old and new baskets would bind together with new roots and now the roots are adhering to the new basket. The first photo was a year ago when newly repotted.
