    Oh my my. That disaster orchid is, well, overflowing. I'm surprized it didn't strangle itself to death with all of those roots!

    Welcome, Dana! If you are looking for fellow addicts, you've come to the right place!

    So what did you do with the disaster phal? I think I'd stick it in a cedar basket and let it carry on!

    About that strange looking phal.....
    This was only my second repot case so I was quite nervous about it...specially with this phal having roots all over the place.
    I cut away the dead roots and removed 1 basal keiki (it's happy in it's own little pot)
    I repotted the phal in a mix of bark, coconut chips and some sphag, it's in a transparent plastic pot with some styro peanuts in the bottom.
    I have NO CLUE if I did it right....
    The stem on this baby was quite long and i wasn't sure if i could bury some of it in the media..i chose not to because i was afraid that the stem would rot.
    The plant is now back at my mother in law but i'll take a picture next time i'm there so you guys can see what i did.
    The keiki stayed with me
