Good job Bruce congratulation.
Excellent job Bruce.imagine to work all 60 plants.i was doing that last year for all plants that I bought on my birthday but now I slow myself for orchid shopping.
Yesterday I repot one cymbedium that over grown the pot and accidentally broke one new growth.
Wish I had that opportunity to help someone by getting 60 new plants. Although I am running out of room for any more plants, I wish I could save 60 plants. I'd do it in a sec. Agree that I would like to see some pictures.
Congratulations Bruce! WOW! Repotting 60 plants !!!!
WOW, nice job! It takes me around two hours to get just one plant repotted
You are very lucky.....I was given quite a few mixed species about 3 and a half years ago now and have really battled with them......I lost a lot but those that remain (cattleyas mostly) are looking promising - the lady didn't really take good care of them......enjoy - nothing more relaxing and peaceful than working with plants and potting them up with some TLC.....keep us posted with pics!!!!!!
Glad your greenhouse is repopulating!
60 plants sounds like a lot of work.

Okay, I took some photos. Since the orchids have all been mixed in with my collection, it is hard to tell what is what, but here are some photos anyway since you all asked.
Some miltonia orchids that were growing out of there pots with dead centers. Those were the hardest to repot. I wonder if my greenhouse will even be cool enough to grow them??
several phals. I had to use an ice-cream bucket for one of them it had such a massive amount of roots (white pot with blooming phal)
Some cattleyas and a few other odds and ends
some oncidiums type orchids. So many of these. This is one of the last groups that got repotted. I had to divide and divide because they were all grown out of the pot.
With all the orchids added to the collection since January of this year, it is starting to look pretty cool in there again. It was so depressing with all the empty benches.
All look healthy.they'll appreciate from your hard work
