    Default (Oncidium) Does this need repotting

    I wonder if this one needs a larger pot now - I think the plastic pot it is in is 3" probably... It looks quite full in there.... I'm thinking of putting in it the NZ spaghnum moss as well... in a clay pot one inch larger...

    All of the flower spikes are browning and the flowers are falling off. Not sure if it's just "It's Time"

    Here is how it sits in the pot now - quite full to my eye...
    Again, suggestions would be thanked!! :c)
    Thanks again!

    Ps. It came with the leaf burn... *sigh* I wish that would disappear...

    no dont repot,that pot can take another year or two growths. The flowers dropping off at this atge would not be your fault,they are at the end of there life.
    Mine are just spiking here.

    I agree, the plant can grow in this pot for another year or two. I think your plant has finished blooming so just cut off all the spike to speed it on its way for next year's flower crop. And while you are at it, you could also trim the burnt leave tips. The plant will be just fine!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Ive seen Onc twinkle 'pee wee' mounted. Mine is in sphagnum and loves its moisture retentiveness.
