    Default feed me Seymour

    .. or "reach out & touch someone"

    For what ever reason this Enc decided to send a number of roots out the hole in the bottom of the pot. [Won't that make repotting a "joy" a some future point.] Additionally all of the roots are headed, as you can see, away from the plant stand.

    I believe that will call for the classic 'hammer vs clay pot' scenario when it comes time for repotting.

    those are crazy rooots! I would break them off when its time to repot...those aerial roots will rot anyways when they are put into a pot and moist media at the bottom. hehe...keeps the drip tray stuck on

    Looks good! Doesn't look like you have to worry about re-potting anytime soon

    Be careful though; those roots WILL in fact come and strangle you when you are asleep, if you don't take care of it...

    ...Or maybe you could train it to haul its own water in a bucket from the sink. Eat an Oreo along the way. Run for President. Obviously, this is an encyclia with ambitions.
