Putting aside your charmingly infelicitous reference to grandmothers and eggs, there is, I assure you, very little of anything whatsoever in which I have developed such expertise as to have become unteachable, f-stops included. That said, I realize that I first raised the cymbidium potting issue in the intro thread, but as I am an essentially simple person, I'll ask you here instead. You described the new spiky growth (like pencils, I think?) that cyms put out behind the backbulb, I believe, and these may be repotted for new growth - whether successfully is, at this stage in my orchid career, moot. Is that a fair description? I am including the best shots I have of what, to me, might be new growth. Can you tell from my photos whether I am on track? I'm including one photo of the monster cym in full, as well as 2 or 3 of the best closeups I could get.
