I'd say it is!

...There is a certain beauty to it. You should crop it...and perhaps enter it in POM.

That photo was taken BEFORE I rinsed the soil? out.
Mom hasn't re-potted a plant since she's received them.
The pots were so old they fractured in my hands upon moving them!
I though it was about time I taught her.

Wow...amazing how resilient plants can be in difficult situations--then again, not sure how difficult it is if they are frequently watered and pampered.

Believe you, me...They are NOT pampered... no way... no how in that household.
My green thumb definitely didn't sprout from her.
As you have just stated...

I've bought orchids from shows that were that bad and some made it. Work your green magic and see what happens.

I took a hand saw and sliced partway into the root system in a few places, tore them apart a bit, set it onto a fresh bed of soil ( in a bit larger pot) and filled in around its edges..It should be fine.
