    Default NO ID Phal

    I bought a Phal , seems in good contition, Photos inclunded from the day bought her.
    The facts
    1)See is in bloom.
    2)I open 4 holes just under the bottom line.
    3)I list 2 Buds
    4) See open 2 new ones a bit small
    5)Still alive 3 weeks now and somehow the leaves are looking up now
    6)I have watered 2 times fertilize once .

    The Problem/question
    Even after the holes keeps some water when i water her and after 9 days some roots is a bit green was when i water her and when i make the holes. This time i turn her upside down while holding the bark and dried a bit.

    Shall i wait for the blooms to fall or i must repoted asap?

    Thanks in advance

    First off, welcome to the forum!

    The green color is just what you are looking for in the roots, it is when that color turns tan that it is telling you to water. As long as the roots don't sit in water you are fine. I would wait another year before repotting as it is getting towards the end of the growing season for most orchids unless you have an issue that just needs to taken care of by repotting, but for now you look ok to me.

    Thanks for the answer, and ofc sorry that I did not introduce myself.
    My name is Panagiotis I live in sunny Greece everything started when I gift an orhid to my Fiancée …

    The issue is that the last 1.5 cm of the pot keeps water , I almost soved it by turning upside the pot after i watering but still annoying and need takes 10 day to silver color with 30-32 degrees Celsius and even then the bottom still a bit green.
    Thanks in advance

    As JDT said I would repot when you see evidence of new root growth, normally. Hybrid Phals. are pretty sturdy during repots, so it's not an issue to carefully repot when blooming in my experience. I do it all the time. (Frankly, I repot them any time of year, especially if I'm worried about the condition of the medium from the grower...they bounce back quickly) If you want to wait, but want it to dry a little faster, add a few more holes to the pot. Alternately or in addition, you can add more air movement. Not too much or you could possibly blast the buds.
