    Default Dlaca Chantilly Lace 'Hildos'

    I gave this plant to my girlfriend about a year or two ago but she left it at my house ever since. This year it product the most spikes (5) and few of flowers opened. It has a very nice fragrant. I hope you all enjoy it like I do. BTW should I report it after it finish bloom. There are few growths grown outside of the pot and roots are everywhere as you can see in the picture.

    That's quite a plant, its so pretty, I think you should crack the pot and let the roots grow through, my husband thinks you should just leave it be and let the new roots keep on taking over! Whatever you decide, like bench says you are definitely taking great care of it. I wonder how what it will look like the next time it blooms

    Wow great growing job. I'd be afraid to disturb it since it looks so happy. Maybe you should let it be and if you think it's under stress then repot. Have you thought about dividing it? Maybe that's an option.

    Today I went out and check the pot. I don't think I am able to move the pot even an inch without break many good roots. I think I will go with cag&jdgorchidcrzy and ischel1 let it take over the tree trunk. I manage to snap a picture of another bloom. This one is a little different from the rest of the bloom. As you all can see it has spots.
