    Cool I just repotted an orchid for the first time ever

    You can't really see the pot and roots but I trimmed them up, cut the spikes to the base, washed the container and put new bark in. I think it's happy!
    Thanks everyone for the advice and videos

    It looks happy, just don't bounce it around much till those roots grow. When you say you trimmed the roots up, I am assuming you mean the dead roots........
