orchids

I wouldn't repot until the roots are coming through the bottom....i know you can trim the dead ariel roots......

i repotted all mine and regretted it..i have damaged a few in the process...Dr hessayon books are good..he has one on orchid care....i should have followed his instructions...

i do know Orchids like to fit tightly in their pot.....

after having lost a few i havent given up, just learnt my lesson Gerry...i have some beautiful orchids now...and care for them with great pride.....

Does anyone know what the name of this plant is?

Yes..just checked both sites..could be either...maybe as it grows i will be able to identify it better...i am leaning towards the polka dot plant ..but will keep an open mind....i bought it from a florists very cheap....and am looking forward to potting it up but thought it would be nice to know what it is...i appreciate the feedback Dove and Star....
