Cymbidium Miss Taipei
I bought a monstrosity of an orchid ove the weekend called Miss Taipei. It had split the plastic pot and has four flower spikes not yet opened but will in a week or so it seems.
I don't want to divide bz I am afraid to do so, and bz I am told it like to be potbound. Problem is the roots encircled the pot, and the medium is consumed by the roots. He is a huge fellow.
How do I repot after blooms are spent. The plant is half out of its pot and the pot has split its sides. I anticipate that if I tease the roots apart, I will end up with a root system that is twice its size since they are now tightly wound together and will spread apart when loose. They also seem very long. I am afraid to do anything.
Can I just put in a larger pot without removing medium. Say 10". Current pot is 8".
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
