When should I repot my phalaenopsis orchid and how, also is it a good time to buy other orchids or is april too late?
I recently bought a phalaenopsis orchid about 4 months ago which is in full flower, 13 large flowers with healthy looking white exposed roots and roots in the bark although the orchid is propped up on a stick it looks very big, about 60cm tall from top of pot to tip of flower. I had some problems with bud blasts earlier last month losing two buds and I want to know
a) what fertiliser I should use, if any.
b) when and how to repot it.
c) what other house plant orchids would be suitable for a novice like me and is it still ok to buy them, if so ones that are already in bloom or not?? Or even seeds?
