Ok, so I 'rescued' an orchid from RONA. (the tag says it is a phalaenopsis) it was half off, but still flowering with new flower buds at the end of the stem.
I removed it from its 1.5" pot and it is currently growing in what looks like 100% moss, no soil or plant mix. It does not seem root bound, but has what looks like aerial roots trying to escape :p
I don't mind going and getting a decent orchid mix, but I usually let plants get used to their new environment when I bring them home.
Would you recommend:
a - leaving it as is, in the moss, for a few weeks?
b - putting it into a slip-pot with orchid mix, but leave the inner moss intact?
c - repot it entirely into orchid mix, removing of the moss what the plant will let go of?
also, it came in this ridiculously tiny pot - do they like small pots, or can I pot it up for faster growth? (it is currently 6" tall, aboveground, plus a 2" deep pot)
Thanks for any input.
