    Default Milt repot? divide?

    I took this out to see the root condition. Is this root bound and should I repot?

    The PB far lower left is the one that had the leafs with the black spots, etc., from my previous post here:

    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...tml#post409836

    The flowers on the spike from this PB didn’t open or bloom fully and died on the spike. I removed the spike when I put it back in the pot. Is it time to divide this to remove this PB?

    New flower spikes from the other PB’s on the above side appear healthy and I anticipate that they will bloom.

    Hello Fred,
    i was in same situation recently and was told not to repot yet.
    Did you buy plant in store or it was shipped?
    My was shipped from NJ to NY, took longer than i expected for two hour drive
    So i lost more than half buds on 4 spikes. buds become watery mushy. I sniped them off. The rest were ok and later one opened. (here is link to my thread http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...ton-brown.html )
    I just dont like blakish stuff on surface, or maybe it just the way camera captured it.

    Hi and thanks for responding. I read your thread and it was helpful. I purchased this at a local nursery and it appeared healthier then than now. The black spots are not responding to anything I've done thus far or has been recommended to me.

    I guess I will do "watchful waiting" and be very careful about watering. I'll keep you updated with what occurs going forward if your interested. I would also be interested to hear about your experience. Thanks.
