    Bruce, you ought to see the roots on these gorgeous little orchids. They are nothing short of amazing. I wonder what Sarah has been feeding them, because they are the plumpest, greenest healthiest things I've ever seen. How do I know this? Because today I decided to live dangerously and repot them into s/h. I checked with Sarah before doing this, and she said it I wanted to try it, now is the time!! So, please everybody........ say a little prayer to the great Orchid Gods that they are just as happy in s/h.

    If you look closely, you can see the roots showing thru the pot on the Maki Watanabe. Believe me, those roots have filled the pot. I am thinking that it really needs a larger pot though.

    I can't wait to see these babies growing up!!
