Here are a few of my plants that are blooming in the house right now.

The African Violet was 1 small plant, could sit in my hand. That was at least 8 years ago. It is now split off to 3 big plants. I think the next time I re-pot I will split them up.

Very Nice African violets, love the color grin

The last plant is the Anthurium andraeanum and is very pretty! I've never had luck with them I'm so jealous shewinks
I'm not real sure what to do with the orchid, I kinda like the way it looks with the roots reaching out. Hopefully someone will come along and advice you.
Maybe you can turn it upside down and slowly release it from the pot tenderly drawing the roots back through to repot???

Angelblossom...thank you! I am very lucky with all my windows. I have direct sun and bright light both. It is hard not to grow plants with everything so bright. I've lived in really dark houses before and it is really a challenge with no light. Here, you just set them down and water!

posting pictures with in a post is fine, instead of using links .
Just 3 per post then submit, hit reply and post 3 more, you can use this method as many times as you wish as long as there is just 3 in a post. :wink:
you do very well with plants and we enjoy seeing them clap

This is my orchid. The picture shows all the roots. Not sure what to do, should I re-pot? I've re-potted once and now I guess to re-pot again, I will need to break this pot or is it ok to cut the roots?

This plant, does anyone know the name? I've had it for about 5 years and re-potted it several times. Blooms continually.
