Following my post about how to persuade an orchid to rebloom Dee posted a comment asking how deep the orchid should be planted when repotting. I thought that the best way of answering this was to post a video showing exactly how it should be done. This video is presented by Ana Louise a student at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I found her explanation of the importance of cleaning the roots very helpful. Her demonstration includes the correct potting medium to use and, of course, how deep to plant the orchid. Watch the video below and I hope you will find it as useful as I did.
