    Default How do I repot this oncidium?

    I would like to repot this orchid, however am not sure of the best way to do so. Three pseudobulbs are kind of in a cluster, with roots that seem to be more of less in tact, although a bit dry right now because I haven't watered in a few days. The other pseudobulb seems to have grown off from the main group., and has nice, healthy roots and what seems to be another new shoot coming off.

    Should I just cut this one pseudobulb off the main group and repot on its own, or should I replant the entire thing? I'd have to plant the whole thing at an angle so that the long new roots can be covered by the medium and retain some moisture.

    Thanks for the input. So even if I decide to mount it, should I cut the one pseudobulb off the main group?

    If you want to cut is no issue you will get another extra plant so make sure cut at the base of rhizome therefore the active roots later will expand further and support as the new healthy plant.
