Q.

House plane over growing pot.

Zone 97080 | Steve Callier added on August 27, 2018 | Answered

We have a house plant that is well established and over growing the pot. The roots are coming out of the top. Is this normal or should we try to put in a larger pot and cover the roots?

I'm actually not able to identify the plant from just the foliage. Is this an Orchid of some type?

If you have an Orchid, aerial roots are common.
