New Phal in sphag moss

Hi everyone,

I have about 7 already in bark but recent acquired 3 more in sphag moss. Can I move the 3 Phals from sphag to bark while in bloom? I tend to water too much don't want the new Phals to rot.

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, you can. I do it immediately if I buy one or someone gives it to me. Flowers won't suffer. Just do it carefully and make sure you snip off any dead roots while at the task. Clean, sterilized snips. Make sure the medium you are planting it in has been soaked for a few hours. Overnight is best.

Thanks!

Good to hear . It's always a good idea to repot and take note of the condition of the roots, too.
