Remember my Phals?
You can see that they're growing right out of the pots.
The next three pictures show how badly my phalanopsis needed to be repotted. After I took this one out of the pot I decided to cut the plant off at about the level of the top of the pot. Then I removed about four or five leaves from the bottom because I wanted to get the roots between them down into the pot. I put all the phals as low into the pots as I could so they'd have room to grow upward for a year or two.
This is the only one of mine that had a baby plant. I didn't try to separate it from the parent plant. I put them both in a pot slightly on their side so that the plant crowns would be next to each other and have room to grow. Both already had bloom spikes growing.
