I just, today, unpotted the Phaius I got from EFG and roots were crammed into that pot. I mean frickin' CRAMMED! They use sphagnum and recommend sphagnum for their Phaius so I repotted in a larger pot with sphagnum. BUT........I didn't do anything with the roots. Should I have tried to release them or is just repotting in a larger pot okay? I've not come across this before and I'm not a beginner but as I was repotting I was thinking, "What would people on the forum have done?" It's not too late. I could easily unpot it.
