A. Your Phalaenopsis has been potted in that pot for about a year, though the plant itself is older. Mature plants like yours can be grown in the same container until the potting medium starts to decompose, usually in another year or two. We recommend repotting in spring, immediately after flowering. You can use the same pot, just change out the potting mix. If the orchid has gotten lots bigger (usually in a few years) you can go up to a plastic pot one or two inches wider (found at home improvement stores or nurseries). We do not recommend direct planting to the ceramic as this won’t allow proper air flow or drainage.
