Aerial Roots

Aerial roots are any roots growing above or outside the growing media in an orchid pot.

Phalaenopsis orchids often have many aerial roots. Don't try to put these roots down into the potting media when you repot. The most vigorous plants have these roots and it is important to spray them between waterings.
