Our 10" Oxygen Core Dual™ Octagon Pot brings a new level of logic to growing orchids in pots. It is the biggest in the Oxygen Core Dual family, and is unique from the others not just in size ( 10 inches wide and 7.25 inches tall ), but also because the Inner Core is Octagon shaped, and the openings are bigger. This is helpful for larger plants and those with thick roots to prevent tangling of roots. Sphagnum based mixes like our Gold blends ( Imperial and Classic ) will be contained inside nicely. Finer mixes should be used with lining material like our Coconut Hunk Fiber to contain the mix inside the Inner Core Octagon. Like all of our Oxygen Core Dual pots, this is a two part pot with several innovations brought together to create a perfect environment for growing. The outer pot is clear but stiff walled and allows for maximum light to enter. Drainage is outstanding with 4 cut out square ports in the sides and 4 more holes at the bottom for increased drainage and airflow. There are 12 reinforcing tabs molded into the inside base for added structural strength and the exterior bottom has 8 slight ridges to elevate the pot from surfaces and to provide added stability.
The Inner Core pot is a heavy duty net basket which fits down into the outer pot and allows for an air gap to exist between the pots. Removal of the plant from the Outer Shell is simple by just lifting the outer rim of the Octagon Pot which rests on top of the Outer Shell rim. This allows for root examination, cleaning of the inside of the Outer Shell, and to transport the plant into a display pot easily while in bloom.
The result of all these features is to create a growing environment that enhances humidity in the space between the two pots on the sides and at the bottom. Air flow is significantly improved which reduces potential root rot while increasing humidity. A further advantage of this design is that it contains the roots inside the pot by encouraging root growth "around and down" rather than over the top of the rim. Oxygen is key to happy roots and the Oxygen Core Dual Pot from rePotme is one special pot for your prized plants to thrive in.
We recommend watching the roots so that they don't become tangled between the two pots. Once the roots become well established and protrude through the inner net pot, we like to then remove the plant from the inner pot and place it in the outer shell for longer term growth. We think of the inner pot as a kind of training wheels set-up for orchids that need the optimum development environment. We don't want to leave the "training wheels" in place too long once the desired development has taken place which could result in an unnecessary challenge to free the roots at repotting time. Freeing roots can be done by snipping the inner net pot (preferably not the roots!). Replacement inner net pots and outer shells are available in all sizes.

“I repotted it in the Imperial Monterey Orchid Mix that I had on hand, with a sad bloom or two still trying to hang on. Since then, it began growing new roots and leaves. The spike even began to grow/elongate, adding new buds, and rewarded me with 7 new blooms, the size of your palm. A testament that your products work wonders.”

“I had to write to you again to tell you that I always refer to your potting mixes as "Steroids for Orchids"”
- Cindy B.
“I was actually going to throw (my orchid) away because it hadn't done anything in years. After repotting in your Classic Cymbidium mix it actually bloomed the second winter!”
- Suzanne S.
“My phals grown in the Phal Monterey Gold Imperial mix retain older leaves longer, grow more new leaves and double or branch spikes. They LOVE it. And so do I.”
- Joanne G.
“Since I had such success with that mix and the Paph mix, I have converted some of my Phals to the Imperial Mix...they are showing the same results. Strong growth, good roots and spikes. Your mixes are always fresh and distinctive. I have found nothing on the market like them and recommend them to all my orchid friends. Not sure what you put in them but keep it up.”
- Cindy B.
“I had to write to you to tell you how much my orchids love your mixes. The first one tried was the Oncidium Imperial Mix. They doubled in size and needed to be repotted or divided after a year. I then tried the (Paph and Phrag) mix and again, success As you say, You Know Mixes. Thanks for keeping your commitement!”
- Cynthia B.
“I received the potting mix and I have to say that it is wonderful!! I was skeptical to spend a little extra money for the bark mix when I can go to Lowe's and get it for a fraction of the price. But...your mix speaks for itself! So clean, nice and easy to work with. It's the best and I plan on buying for you all again and again. Thanks so much!!”
- Alicia S.
Q: What should I do when roots come through openings in the pot (Net, Slotted, Oxygen Core etc.)?
A: Orchids are notorious for sending roots every different which way. That's not so surprising since orchids growing in the wild are free to extend their roots in search of moisture, food, support and light. There are a few schools of thought on how best to deal with adventurous roots. For example, with Net pots one can snip away the pot if needed when the time comes, and another is to move the plant up to the next size before the roots get too established working through the net material. Slotted pots can be similarly cut or snipped away from roots when the time comes to repot or it is necessary to move the plant up or out of its existing container.
Oxygen Core Dual Pots create a very favorable growing environment and root growth is likely to be quite vigorous soon after potting in them. One can use the inner pot until the roots start to expand and then remove the plant from it and place it back into the outer shell (kind of like taking training wheels off a child's bike).
Vigorous healthy root growth is a good thing, and supports an overall happy and healthy orchid that will produce strong leaves and beautiful flowers. Managing the repotting process so plants are able to develop a strong and expanding root zone is an important part of the equation.
