    That's a good question because this species doesn't like its roots to be disturbed. So they say at least.

    I did repot it once several years ago and I lifted the whole root ball over to a container with equal parts large bark and LECA. Then one day when it had become quite big, it fell during a summer storm and the pot broke. I just lifted the whole thing over to another terracotta pot with only LECA and it continued growing for a couple of years as if nothing had happened. Believe it or not, the plant fell again during a storm in 2019 and I almost thought it was the end of it. Again, I repeated the process of lifting it over to an even bigger pot. As you can see, the plant seems completely unaffected. I cannot really tell when the plant needs water anymore so I have just decided to water it every second week during winter and every week during summer and that seems to work.

    Gorgeous Angraecum! I enjoy Angraecoids, but have to stick to the smaller ones due to my limited space.

    Thanks Susan. I also have limited space but this plant was small once about 12 years ago when I bought it...

    This plant grew bigger and I couldn't stop myself from adding more plants to my collection so I just had to reconsider the space I needed. Then I consulted my very understanding wife. Suddenly I had more space and I only had to buy some more lights. According to Jack (JDT) in this forum, there are always possibilities to come up with more space.

    I would considered one of the huge species requiring bigger spaces and the weight keep increasing without us realized but worth it. I agree with Jack always got space for the new comers he he.
