Cymbidium orchids, more commonly known as “boat orchids” due to the shape of their flowers, are one of the most popular types of orchids for gardeners. They are also easy to care for and can even be grown outside in the right climate.
Orchids can usually live in the same pot for at least a year or two without any problems. But sooner or later, your orchid will outgrow its pot, or its potting mix will start to break down. That’s when you’ll need to repot it.
Orchids can be quite fussy about the type of pot they live in. In general, they require good drainage and plenty of free airflow around their roots. This helps to prevent root rot and ensures their sprawling root systems have plenty of room to grow.
