    I also look at repotting as a little daunting, thougn I shouldn't. Hope the insects quit 'bugging' you and the orchids. AL

    I first thought 'NO repotting', too, but the way I ( and some of you ) grow Vandas without baskets is another great way to save space.

    I surely added more plants after I removed those baskets.
