How do I switch from s/h to bark?

13 years ago

Hey all,

I have a majority of my orchids (phals, cattleyas, miltonias) in s/h. It worked so well I pretty much left them in the care of my mom, and a few years later they've all outgrown their pots. Okay, so really they've been needing repotting for at least a year now, but they kept blooming and I didn't want to piss them off...

Anyway, I've got a bunch of orchids well established in s/h and I want to know if anyone has any good ideas on the least painful way of putting them back in bark. I think it'll be easier for me to go back to traditional, unless someone can help me figure out how to repot a s/h'd orchid.

TIA everyone!
