    The leaf base on the vini is dark red as expected. The coloratums and the two white/greens have no color at the base of the plant or leaves. I can post a photo of the vini base color if you would like to see it.

    Gilda, I find they don't like to be overpotted like most other orchids.

    When I repot, I tend to size the pot based on the mass of the roots rather than leaf span. I just repotted a bunch of seedlings, 20 or so, and only moved two up to larger pots. One was a roth and the other was a complex.
