    Default Slc. India Rose Sherwood 'Kilani' care?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a newbie to the orchid world. I just recently got myself a Slc. India Rose Sherwood 'Kilani' (nearly blooming size) and was wondering how I should take care of it. There are roots outside the plastic pot. Should I repot? and how often should I feed it?

    Many thanks in advance for your good advice!

    If it is not severely rootbound, leave it alone until after it blooms. Feed it once a week with a very weak solution of orchid plant food. And don't forget their love for light.
