    Default Dendrobium Nestor potting

    Read that Dens like to be in small pots. For some reason I decided to put this Den in a basket. Now the roots are all over the place. Would it be better for the roots to be in a pot instead of all out in the open? Does it make a difference?Name:  IMG_3009.jpg

    You could leave it as is Monica. Dendrobiums love to be under potted. it looks healthy. repot it only when the medium is broken down.
