As I have very limiting space in my appartment for speciment plant :-( I have to divide my plants every time it grow out of the pot, no room for more pots :-( .
I though cant sell my collection of "larger" species as I do want to have those species and I "store" them for the future possibility to get more space or even a greenhouse.
The good thing is that I have no hard feeling to cut up large plant when a need to do that. When rot has started in the rizome of the Cattleya allience, hard pruning is essential to save some part of the plant. Lost some great Sophronitis as I have been to sentimental in the past.
