OMG Psychopsis repot success?
Default OMG Psychopsis repot success?

I'm a beginner. I posted about a mature Psychopsis Mariposa 'Green Valley' with two spikes (one mature bud) that I purchased in July. It was so pot bound that water would NOT penetrate the medium, and the bud dropped 2 days after I got it home. Pics are included.

With advice received from this forum I caaaaarefully repotted into S/H and OMG I AM BEYOND EXCITED. Look at the beautiful blooms!! Three new growths appear to be developing just fine.

I'm so happy and wanted to share. Thank you, Orchid Forum!

I had no idea they like LECA method. Congratulations! How much water do you leave in the LECA pot?

It's proven to be a thirsty one so far. When the reservoir drops by about half, I re-fill the container and let it drain so the reservoir is full again, usually three times a week.

It continues to do well post-repot. The previous blooms dropped and were replaced by two NEW blooms. My friend calls it "giraffe flower."

Hey Kim, congrats on the flowers. That is one on my wish list. The bottom of that moss ball was very degraded.
It looks great now. Since July though - that has been a long wait. I would have thrown it against a wall in that time

Hey, patience is especially a virtue with that one... once it gets going, each spike can pop out a flower every 6-8 weeks for YEARS. I think that it is on its way! Well done!
