    Definitely do not repot until the plants go completely dormant

    I do not agree , when we ordering in the Australian nursery, we order tubers, not leaf plants.We are planting many dormant tubers.The repotting is done in the same way.

    I always do it like that, and it works very well, on my 10 species

    I am slightly confused. Are you saying to repot when they are tubers as opposed to once they go dormant? I had read to repot when they start to sprout after dormancy.

    Bonjour

    for me when they are in dormancy , in default, when it starts to germinate, in fact I proceed as for tuberous drosera .

    Chib, while I have never grown these, my understanding is that you can repot once they go dormant .... ie. in their tuberous stage. You do not need to wait until the tubers begin to awaken. Doing so while full dormant does have the advantage of minimizing the likelihood of damaging a growth point or missing just when they start to grow and discovering you waited too long.

    I grow 10 forms of P. curta and over 400 varieties of other Australian terrestrial orchids.

    The best time to repot is always when the plants are fully dormant and before they begin to regrow.

    Once the rosettes have died off in late spring, wait another few weeks until the stolons have also died and then you are ready to go.

    Thank you all,

    Thank you all, I now have a better understanding of how to handle these plants. Hopefully they will be the first of such plants I will be able to grow.

    I think you'll find that they're a little more hardy than you expect too Chib.
