Q.How To Repot An Orchid That Has Roots Grown Through The Slats Of Its Cedar Basket?

Zone Seguin, TX, USDA Zone 8 | kmencin added on January 15, 2023 | Answered

My Phalaenopsis orchid has been in the same cedar basket for 4 years now. It has quite a lot of air roots growing out the sides and top of the basket. How can I repot it without damaging all the roots or should I just pour out as much media as possible and put new media in around the roots?
