    Default Repotting my Phal

    One of my Phals that finished blooming was in need of repotting. Talk about healthy roots!
    I went from a 4" to a 6" pot. Hope it remains as healthy as it is now. I wish all my Phals had a root system like this....

    Getting one in a "real" medium, instead of the usual zoom-n-bloom sphag was a real bonus, and it looks like you're doing everything right - make sure you put it in a shadier place for a week or two while it recovers from the shock of being repotted. Some members withhold water during that time, others don't - personally, I don't, but that's not to say I'm at all right.
