Looks good Damien. I was considering repotting mine soon into a small clay pot. I only have one other phal in a clay pot and I have no idea of what will happen when it's time to upsize the pot. Do you have trouble with the roots sticking to the clay?

I do but it isn't that big of a deal. I remove as much bark by turning it upside down and start anaylizing the roots...with a thin knife I softly pry them off the pot. If that doesn't work... then if I have to...i'll cut them...not too far in just enough to where I can get it loose. Although, you should be good with just prying them with a X-acto knife.

I have a Phal that is almost done with her blooms. It has roots galore...I will take pics when I remove it.

My post from the 11th disappeared, but it stated the same thing. What happened?
