    Default Transplant in all continents

    Hello companions, like I have seen that there are people of different continents, interests me to know which is the best moment (in each one of your continent) to carry out the transplant of the Paphiopedilum. The best month for my in Barcelona (south west of Europe) is the month of May. The new growths already have awoke and the roods are very active.
    I expect your answers.

    i live in south florida. and i usually wait untill late febuary-march to re-pot. depends what the night time low temp's are. we normally only have a few weeks in the (40's night time lows) like 3-4 nights in a row then it will warm up again(50's night time lows) then cool off again. i have found if i wait untill summer it gets to hot and the new potting medium doesn't hold enough water.
    you just need to see what works best for your situation.
    take care

    Default NW France

    I live in NW France and I started repotting my Paphs last week. I hope it will be finished by Sunday next. The reason I start early is because I grow them inside my house. The winter is not a good time for them and they a need a fresh medium rather urgently to start growing new roots. A friend of mine repots them twice a year--spring and fall--with excellent results. They love the fresh medium and do not sulk.

    I shall wait for new roots on my Catts (the worst must be C. dowiana which croaks if you do not time the repotting well--b****y nuisance if you ask me). Happy growing nevertheless
