Repotting My Orchids

Preparations for the spring planting season are well underway at my farm - seeds have been ordered and tools have been cleaned. Meanwhile, there’s a lot going on inside the greenhouses as well. Over the last few days, my gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, have been keeping busy repotting my large collection of orchids.
Caring for orchids is a daunting process for many, but if you take time to understand their basic needs, and have all the proper orchid care supplies, there is no reason why they won’t continue to thrive and bloom in your home.
This is a good time to look closely at your orchids. If your orchid appears to have outgrown its pot, or its roots look to be overflowing, or if the potting material is noticeably old and soggy, it probably needs repotting. Here are some photos to show you how we do this process. Enjoy…
