Orchid Repotting

Do take the time to learn to repot orchids. They don't grow in dirt! We love to repot orchids, to examine them slowly and enjoy their new roots. Orchids resent being left in the same media forever. Do yourself a favor and pick a media that suits your environment and your habits. If you love to water your plants, put them in a medium that drys out quickly. If you don't have a lot of time for watering, do the opposite. Figure out what works for you. The plants will tell you when they are happy.

There are few hard & fixed rules and that's hard for beginners with only a few plants. Don't let that stop you. If you collect a few plants you will likely buy ones in bark, moss, rock, peat moss, etc. See which medium works best for you in your conditions and begin to transition similar plants into the same mix. Repotting when the plant is in active growth helps it to reestablish itself very quickly.

If you are unsure what type of orchid you have, our Orchid Identification page shows pictures of each of the major orchid types. Use this page to help identify the plants you are repotting. If all else fails, use the orchid's root size to select a suitable mix.
