Repotting Orchids: A Guide for Optimal Growth

Repotting orchids is crucial for their well-being. Here's a comprehensive guide for successful repotting and promoting healthy growth.

When is the right time to repot?

Ideally, orchids should be repotted every 2 years or after blooming to remove rotted substrate and ensure effective air exchange.

Step-by-step guide for repotting

  • Gently remove the plant from the old pot.
  • Free the roots from old substrate, trimming dry and rotten roots.
  • Hold the plant by the leaves and introduce the cleaned roots into the new pot.
  • Use fresh orchid planting substrate to loosely fill the pot.
  • Opt for new or disinfected pots, preferably transparent specialty pots for orchids.

Why is repotting important?

Repotting promotes root health, prevents suffocation, and ensures optimal air exchange for robust growth and abundant flowering.

After repotting

Do not water immediately after repotting. Allow the plant time to acclimate before starting the watering routine.


Repotting orchids is crucial for their health and beauty. With the right technique and high-quality orchid planting substrate, you create optimal conditions for successful growth.
