Repotting Calendar

The most important factor in the timing of orchid repotting is to repot after the bloom and as the new growth is emerging. Repotting when an orchid is in active growth provides the plant with its best opportunity to settle quickly into its new media. You want to make sure that the orchid can make it through a full bloom season without requiring repotting. Some genera, most notably Phalaenopsis, are very forgiving about when they are repotted and can be repotted pretty much any time they are not in bloom.

Below is a chart of the general repotting times for the most common genera. These are not approximate dates, but are offered as general guidelines. The most important thing is to observe the plant and repot it after it blooms and as it begins its new growth.
