    It seems interesting. I guess the practise isn't used anymore on account of flask seedlings being much more fruitful. It does look fun though. It didn't say anything about fungus in the soil so I don't think that they grow from that. Maybe it has something to do with latent nutrients in the medium.

    I used the kitchen method works fine if you are very careful , pressure cooker , aquarium , bleach,tools , gloves, distilled water boiled . I made up the mother flasks and left them sit for about 10 days to 2 weeks without seeds in them that way if they go bad all is not lost , lost one jar, mold spores are in the air just takes one to contaminate the flasks .
    I bought Hills medium already formulated just add boiled distilled water .
    Right now have the re-plate jars done they are ready to be used after sitting for 2 weeks .
    The seedlings ( Phal. species X) are growing well in the mother flasks,thought about leaving them in it they are not crowded and can be taken out before they get that way . Have read the Hills is a pretty hot formula . Not decided yet hate to fix what isn't broke .
    Give it a try if I can anyone can . Gin
