Answer

Orchids do not need to be repotted very often, as they prefer to be slightly pot-bound. Every two or three years is usually sufficient. Repotting is best done when new growth is beginning. Try to avoid transplanting in the heat of summer. It is important to remove as much of the old potting medium from the roots as possible by shaking or rinsing the roots under gentle running water. Any rotting roots can be removed at that time. Orchids can be divided at this time as well.
