C. Callistoglossa

This plant, acquired in June from Cal-Orchid, finally started root growth.  It had completely filled the small plastic pot it came in, so needed to be re-potted.  After some delicate work, I finally got it out of the pot and saw there was almost no media - it was mostly healthy roots.  I put the plant in an Aircone pot with orchiata and some charcoal mixed in and since it is a big plant, I staked it with two large bamboo stakes (you can see one in this pic).  Here is the plant a few days after re-potting - it vigorously pushing out large numbers of new roots on three leads.
