How To Tell It’s Time To Repot Your Orchid

It’s very important to choose the right time to repot your orchid.

Direction

1. When over the pot edges occur roots of considerable lengths, it means that the plant requires a larger pot.

2. If the plant has started the flowering process, changing the pot will be delayed until the flowering ends.

3. If the plant is not flowering, the pot can be changed.

4. Get rid of all the diseased roots (they are usually brown and soaked).

5. Gather the roots and place them in the pot, facing down.

6. The pot is filled with substrate for orchids (pine bark), soaked in water.

7. Attention! The leaves base shouldn’t be covered with the substrate. That would cause plant rotting.

8. The regular watering schedule will be resumed after a week.

9. Usually, the repotting is done every two years.

Note: These directions concern the epiphyte orchids.
