No wonder everyone's so afraid or intimidated of growing Orchids, most of them are already doomed from the nursery... it's such a shame, but thankfully, there are people such as yourself to help us save them. Or at least try. I can hardly wait to repot my new Orchids, although I'm still intimidated.

Thanks Danny, this was such a great video! It was so informative to actually see you make decisions and how you tug on the roots to see if they are alive or dead.

I love repotting so it was so much fun to see all the orchids and situations that you came across. So yes, keep this type of video coming.

Oh my gosh, I've never seen someone have so much love and care for their orchids. I have always been somewhat cautious of them, because of one bad experience. I bought one once in my past, and it died. They're just so beautiful and somewhat costly, for me to just kill them! However, I have a perfect green thumb on everything else just about. So recently I found an orchid discounted to $15, at my local supermarket. I have had her now for over a month and she's just starting to drop her flowers. She has a type of bromelaid just aesthetically shoved into the side of the pot with her. I'm about to muster up some intestinal fortitude and re-pot them both in separate containers. I'll also cut that stalk, as in one of your other videos, and see if I can encourage a 2nd bloom. I would NEVER have the courage to do any of these things without your guidance and inspiration. Thank you so much! Because of you, perhaps I can now add these gorgeous creations of nature to my plant/flower collection. I have always adored orchids but always so intimidated. They really do require a special type of care and attention! And they are definitely worth it! I am so glad I found your channel! God bless you!😁

Hi Danny. Yes this was an invaluable repotting showing different situations and problems that can exist within a group and different techniques to remedy that might cover more viewers. You're right about needing two years. My first oncidium the Sherry baby I bought two years ago that was in worst of shape is beginning to spike I discovered this weekend. I almost threw away twice and decided not to give up and though its' spike is wonky will give me a bloom, credit to your vids.

After watching this video, I finally felt confident enough to repot my oncidium! It was much needed and so far, successful. Thank you so much!

Loved this video! I just bought 9 sick baby orchids, been watching your videos to figure out how to make them healthy!

Thanks Danny! This is a very very informative repotting video that I need and enjoy to watch. 1 question: when repotting phalaenopsis with unhealthy root, should root not be wrapped with wet moss but bark? I had some phal with few root repotted last week. I found the unheathly root gone in the wet moss very soon. I wonder if the wet moss would cause the unheathly root rotten easily, without a chance to bounce back. Thanks!

Love this format because of all the education. And it’s easy to go back and see all the reportings in one

You're amazing. Your videos are just so enjoyable to watch even if I don't have this type of orchid yet. Keep up the great work.

Very useful and specific! I had problems after separating and repotting Cambria Alpine purchased from Cameleonorchids. One or two pseudobulbs get orange rot in each section. My roots looked like your Eurostar. Only one made a flower spike, but is shrinking and the leaves started to get yelow (although I respected all stages of repotting and desinfecting). I want you to make a progress video about the care you gave to these repotted orchids after a month or two.

So glad I found this video Dani! I recently purchased 4 oncidium orchids and will be repotting soon.
As always, your videos are educational and FUN to watch.

I like this format, especially in this instance. Oncidium intergenerics are my favorite and you have some stunning examples here.

So, here i am watching this a year late, as ironically I've been too busy caring for my own collection. However, I wanted to comment that this was one of the most helpful videos I've watched. I FINALLY feel confident about dealing with roots and re-potting. Having started with phals that are pretty self-explanatory, oncidium roots were tricky. Thanks again for all you share. :)

Hi Danny, I really enjoyed the repotting video. I think it would be awesome to see more. Thanks🤗

Author — Susan Miller


Thanks for this video. I really would be very interested how many from these 10 plants made it. Did you do an update or did I just miss it. By the way the doves 'sound' great.

this was a great video! I inherited a sick oncidium when my dad passed away end of summer and I'm finally going to repot it and see what the roots look like. Now I feel more confident about what to do!
