Repotting in Septmber???
I bought a no ID cattleya from a nursery yesterday for half price $17 because the huge purple flowers had come to an end.
I expressed concerns about repotting and she told me I could put the existing pot in a larger pot and fill the space between with media and it wd continue to grow into the other pot, as the roots were already over the rim.
Since the potting season is over should I do this or can I just shake off the old media gently and fill in with new media. Not a full repot just a little sprucing up.
Thing is, it is so huge; I dont want to lose it.
Or just leave it? It has about 14 pbs, large stiff leaves and looks really healthy. Sorry it had no tag so I cannot identify. Just finished blooming some large burgundy flowers.
Please advise me what to do.
