    Default Sedirea Japonica in need of repotting.

    Have had this plant in S/H for over a year and it has done alright until now. I would like to change it out of S/H but do not know which would be better. Mount or in a pot with sphagnum or bark. Any suggestions?

    The tree fern pot would be ok, just be careful, the roots do not like to be disturbed I lost my first one because I was to harsh with the roots. I tried once more but I have decided that it just does not like my heat and humidity being in south Florida as I lost the second one also, I don't give orchids a third chance any longer. I saw some at a orchid show this past weekend and was very tempted as I do like this species.

    I think it is going to be hard to change form an S/H type environment to anything else, then maybe spgnaum mounted. Unfortunately I don.t have any so I might rya the tree fern pot. Im not sure really which way to go. I also live in a humid,hot environment so I think I am ging to change its location to a cooler, bright light one. Its an experiment for sure.

    I moved mine from s/h to sphag (traditional Japanese mounding) and it has done well. Grown a new leaf and new roots.

    If it has done well for you, why would you want to change in the first place? Don't forget that anything you do will cause a setback, as the plant will have to adapt to the new conditions.

    A tree fern pot is going to be a very drastic change. Good quality sphagnum is pretty easy to come by. If you must​ change, I'd definitely go that way.

    Ray, the plant was doing ok on S/H never really exploded in growth even after 2 years. I realize that the plant may suffer the change so I am not sure if that is the best thing to do.Name:  sedirea japonica - 1.jpg

    Sorry, Monica, but I do not see that as a plant that has done OK. What I see is a plant that has a poorly functioning root system that is not capable of taking up water sufficiently, so the plant is desiccating.

    If it has been OK in the past, but has been declining more recently, I suspect poisoning due to the accumulation of fertilizer residues, plant wastes, etc.

    So your suggestion would be to keep it in S/H and pour water to rinse it out? Thats easy. Is there anything elseI should do?
