    Default Supert Spot (Everglades)

    I picked up a stunning super spot everglades (odontoglossum miltonidium) this weekend. There are 5 or 6 developped pseudo-bulbs, and a few more new ones popping up. One of the pseudobulbs is flowering, some have flowered already, and others will flower soon (but don't have flower stems yet).
    Now, being that there are so many bulbs in that one pot, can I split them apart into a few other pots as well?

    Also, do these require any specific care? I couldn't find much information online... one of the leaves is yellowing, also... any help much appreciated

    Hi Zoe,

    Please upload a photo if you are able. It will help us answer your question. I would guess that with only 5-6 pseudo-bulbs that you should not divide this plant. It really depends on where the new growth is happening. If it is on two sides, then you could probably divide and be okay, but I suspect that the growth is on one side and you should let the plant get much larger. The old pseudo-bulbs will not bloom again. They will eventually die off. They bloom one time and then support the new growth. As the plant ages, and it has more bulbs, then you will get more spikes and blooms. You will also be able to divide it then. If the orchid's new growth is growing out of the pot, it might just need to be repotted.

    Do post a photo if you are able so we can give you the best advice.

    Cheers,
    BD

    I am guessing that is a 6 inch pot?

    It's at most 6"... should I replant it now even though it's flowering?

    Hi!

    The yellow leaf is on an old psb that will eventually die away. The orchid is very healthy. I don't think you need to repot right now, but would after the blooming is over. (Just so you know what the root situation is like inside that pot.)

    Cheers,
    BD
