This is a discussion on Look What I got within the Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Originally Posted by Brutal_Dreamer hehehe... you can do it. Cheers, BD Which? Repot? Or crazy ...
I also have a Baldan's Kaleidoscope. Re-potting isn't really hard to do.You just need to inspect and remove any rotten roots.There is how too sections on the very first page,to the far left side that will be heplful.Healthly roots are very hardy,you won't hurt your new baby.What type of medium is the plant currently in (Moss or Bark) ?? Plants in moss tend to get root rot much faster due to over watering. FYI, Good Luck,Rich
It's in bark thankfully. I had looked at a different one but put it back partly because it was in moss. That, and this one was just begging me to bring it home with me!!
I did find one of the articles on repotting, and I think I'll be able to manage it without too much trauma (to me, not the orchid).
I think these photos may be better, as far as the actual colors (at least on my uncalibrated monitor). And I got brave and straightened up the stake and reclipped the spike so it stands up fairly straight, and I think there are some new buds trying to grow, so I guess my Kaleidascope is happy (at least I hope it is).
Anyhow, here's today's photos:
Just to update you on the progress of my Baldan's Kaleidoscope, look at what's hiding between the blossoms. And it's growing bigger by the day!!
Now let's pray I don't manage to kill the whole thing. I wanna see it bloom!!
