Doritaenopsis Jungo City
Dtps Jungo City shed one of its leaves, resulting in a very unbalanced plant. Its long leaves and relative lack of root mass were causing it to flop over precariously. I wanted to reposition the orchid so that it wouldn't have as much of a tilt, and that meant I needed to repot.
Mix of rotten and healthy roots
When I took the orchid out of its media, I found that while it had grown several new healthy roots, many of its old roots had continued to die off. Overall, I think the roots still look better than when I first repotted this orchid in August, but that's only because of the new roots that have grown in. All the old roots look like they are on their way out. I cut off the rotten material, and potted the orchid back into its original media, trying to position it more upright. The orchid is so top heavy, that it made the task rather difficult.
I also gave the repotted orchid a 30 minute soak in physan solution, as will be my standard practice from now on when repotting anything.
More balanced now
Flower spike on Dtps Jungo City: 25 days
The flower spike has grown since I first spotted it in late October, but rather slowly. Perhaps the same cold that helped initiate all these flowerings has also slowed growth rate. This spike still has a very long way to grow.
