I have two phals.One I've had for a year and a half, the other about 6 mos. They are still in the clear plastic pots they were in when I bought them. They are both still blooming. When do I repot them? What is the best type of planter? Should I use another clear plastic or ceramic? I would love some advice.

Hello Kay and Cheryl,
Think of orchids as air plants they like being in pots w/slots on the bottom and mix of charcoal and coconut cips no Earth.Water mist spray every day at first and once a week give water so roots and all get soaked never to cold water this should get you're Babies back i feed w/Miracle grow mist it ever 3months roots only.

Thanks for your comments, ladies! I will have to get some orchid mix unless anybody has a suggestion of how to make your own. I have potting soil & wood chips for reptile cages? This orchid is a small phal & it is in the pot it came in. I don't really care for it anyway because it is too tall & top heavy. It looked so healthy when I bought it. I hope I can keep it going. I am a lifelong gardener, it kind of runs in my family. I went to school for it, but couldn't make a living at it, so it's my hobby. I'm not used to having this many failures with plants, but I don't have any experience with orchids. This one looks & feels dry to me, but it is packed into this pot so tightly, it's hard to tell.

I work at Lowe's and recently picked up a Phal that was marked down because the flower had died back. I would like to have someone give me some pointers on care and getting it to rebloom.
