    Default Repotting Mtssa. Charles M. Fitch AM/AOs

    I bought a Mtssa. Charles M. Fitch AM/AOs seedling last summer. It's now a mightu big seedling with lots of roots and a nice fat bulb and some new growth that will yield bulbs. This is my second Mtssa seedling and the other is healthy but growing slowerr.
    My question is, given the growth and all the roots, should I repot it now or wait? I think I need to support the bulb. Please take a look at the picture and let me know what you folks think. And by the way, thanks to everyone for all the help with my other babies!

    How is the medium? I normally repot every 2 years but it looks like you are at edge of pot. Hard to tell from the smaller pic. True? Looks like the new growth, on the left, is close to blooming

    Yes, your observation is correct. I have had them almost a year and I don't know how long they were in their pots before I bought them. I was concerned about the white roots that are above the medium- I did add some moss around those white roots but tried to keep it from touching the bulbs...
    If it may bloom soon-should I leave it alone for awhile? It's growing and appears healthy at this time...As I said, like you, I thought it was pretty much filling the pot.
    Thanks-your advice has been great on everything!

    I would let it go and see if it blooms. As long as the new growths are attached, I wouldn't worry that much about the exposed roots they will work there way to the medium
