    I have a handful of complex Paphs that need repotting, but won't have the time till I bring them in next month. Will that be ok for them or should I wait till next spring?

    I'm seeing new root growth on some of my complexes...I would think they would be ok as long as some new growth is going on ???

    The truth of the matter is that I repot any paph. whenever I find the time, no matter what time of year. They always seem happier after repotting.

    That's pretty much my philosophy, also, although most of my repotting is done in the warmer months.

    That's the answer.
    Plus, bulldogs are tough as nails, so they will be perfectly fine among other paphs.
