How to transplant these orchids to a hanging basket?
I bought 2 orchid plants in translucent plastic pots. Now that the flowers are gone, the roots had grown a lot and the pots are too small. I would like to transplant them to a wooden hanging basket but I have no idea how to do that. I’m afraid I’ll kill them. Help, please.

You can buy orchid potting medium which is primarily bark. Orchids are symbiotic/parasitic and feed off the bark of other trees
I wouldn't transplant them, they are not really root bound, orchids grow best like that.

When I purchase new orchids they are in the clear plastic pots and normally come with a decorative pot with no drainage that it is put into. Thais also makes giving the orchid moisture really easy. Fill the decorative pot and the inner pot with tepid water, they are tropical plants (no ice cubes), let sit for the wood to soak up the moisture, I let them sit ten to fifteen minutes. Take out the inner pot and let it drain thoroughly. Empty the decorative pot and put the inner pot back in it. The orchid plant will live off the humidity coming off the wood. Mist them occasionally and apply an orchid fertilizer as directed. Orchids like to be root bound and only should be repotted if the bark is breaking down or about every two years if the wood stays in good shape. I had a bunch of orchids flowering once and one didn't even put out buds, I noticed the wood pieces were getting smaller and didn't look good. I repotted it in new orchid bark and wishing a week was putting out flower buds.
