: : I've recently received my orchid as a gift and am not familiar with this plant. Do these orchids remain in the same pot indefinitely? Mine's in a 4" pot.
They like to be root bound.Leave it in the 4" pot for now. When it starts to break the pot it's time to repot AFTER flowering in the spring. Let it dry out between waterings, bright filtered south facing window. Feed every 2 weeks with a half strength 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 fertilizer.
