    I recently finished repotting my phals...I know should have done this a month or so ago but lazy me! Anyway, I was wondering in my laziness, after repotting, have any of you found a lag time before new vegetive growth (leaves) begins? Once again I'm too lazy to search the board for the answer...and there may be no double-blind scientific answer...just wondering what some of you have found with your plants...and not only phals, other chids, too????

    Usually leaves and roots (growth in general terms) can start to be seen in 3 - 4 weeks if the repotted plant is healthy and getting the proper nutrients. Good luck, Howard.

    Yes. Basically repotting any orchid sets it back a bit (more or less). If you repot a vanda and break the roots...a long sulk is ahead. However, Paphs seems to spring to growth right after repotting. Depends, I guess.
