    Default Potting up my Speciemen Cattleya

    Just finished my surgery with my giant Cattleya yesterday,they try to go out from the rim of old pot,you can see from root bound.i like to have a speciemen size so I looked around for a bigger pot to put.
    The orchids itself grow all direction ,so I plant them in the center of the new pot.enough room to grow for a couple year

    Good work there Kitty.
    Recently I also made the move to nursery field pots for my large specimen cattleyas.
    Now, when I want to move them, the weight is all plant as those plastic pots weigh nothing and when it's time to up-pot them again, no remorse about having to cut the pot into pieces to get the plant out! It's been working great for me.

    I agree about cutting pot in piece,not to damage any roots or new bulb.i was scare when I saw root bound like that but I’was success,only trouble with returning the pot to the same place.luckily I have small cart to carry it
