    Lightbulb Repotting Oncidium/Oncidium Hybrids

    Repotting Oncidium/Oncidium Hybrids , by navyderek.

    I got the Odontocidium Wildcat 'Bobcat' shown in this tutorial a couple of weeks ago for a steal, it was on clearance as it had already finished blooming. It had been by itself, on its own little windowsill, since then just waiting for me to get a chance to repot it properly. I repot all of my Oncidium and Hybrids (Odontocidium, Degarmoara, Wilsonara, etc...) this exact same way, so I hope it will prove some use to the readers.

    I started out by soaking my plant in the sink for a few minutes while I gathered up my supplies. Soaking the plant helps loosen the plant from its pot and makes it easier to remove the old growing media. The supplies I needed..... Read More

    Excellent article, Derek! I know this will help everyone interested in repotting their oncidiums. Great photos too! Oh, and I had to laugh out loud at 'Kill-bad-stufficide'

    Hah! I thought it was funny too. Thanks for providing a place we can read and post articles like this. I plan on adding a root trimming addendum to the artile on the next Oncid I buy with root troubles---which might be a while with the winter coming in earnest.

    And Bill, you are welcome.

    Thanks for all the information. I've repotted several of these in the last few months...some made it, some didn't. I think the "kill-bad-stufficide" is a step that I need to add to up my odds for success! I loved the pictoral step-by-step!
