    the only advice I have is to be gentle, especially with PAPHS. most of the time they don't make that many roots to begin with (unless you are part of the rare few who can make them grow roots) so you want to minimize breakage. dead roots of course should be removed.

    sometimes phrags root so well that you can't avoid breaking some. but those are the plants that will just form another dense rootball in your new pot anyway.

    Very interesting topic. Thank you Diane
    in addition, I announced a similar subject on a French forum : how to repot correctly without destroying roots ?
    On the other hand, it is very difficult for me to translate.

    I will write later on this forum the good ideas.
