Default repotting phalanopsis

Interesting point, Bob. This never occurred to me. How do you moisten them,
use a Qtip or spray bottle? And does this permit you to get longer roots in
the pot without breaking them?

They are less apt to break if well moistened 10 or 15 minutes before
repotting, whether going in the pot or out.

I'd just let them grow, Carolyn. Sometimes when you repot you can

some in the pot without breaking them; but if not, they'll be fine

I agree. To me, Phal roots are very interesting to watch grow. Just let
them do their thing!
