How to handle root bound orchids

by Roger

I "jumped right in" to orchid growing. I brought home 16 orchids from a box store and an orchid nursery. I did all the wrong things! They were completely root bound and soggy wet. I cut them out of their little plastic containers and planted in larger nice looking clay pots without disturbing the tight soggy mass of roots. Of course on a few there were black rotted roots. Planting medium I used was comercial orchid mix and oak wood chips of my own many errors have I made and can they be corrected. I cannot abide plastic pots...

Thank you,
