    Default Some blooms would be a nice change

    A Dawinara-Vandafinetia cross. It has been at least a year since it last bloomed for me and I can't think of any cultural changes that have happened. As you can see, the roots are going to town:

    Haven't had the time or mood to repot it [and yes repotting now will be oh so much "fun" ... not]. Leaves are a medium to light green with some purpling so I would think lightings not an issue.

    I think it needs repotting. Sometime when orchids produce roots like that outside the pot, the ones in the pot are not healthy for some reason. It also helps to stimulate blooms by repotting an orchid that has not bloomed in a while. I think it might be just enough stress to get it going again. Other than that, my recommendation is to still give it more light.
