    Of course that is a good idea and definitely we need to share those little babies to see the development for the past few months maybe somebody can through away the idea how to speed the growth of the individual baby.Thanks Cathy.

    I had three pots of ustii and three of bensonii. I've been pulling out the bigger ones and potting them separate. There are several in these two pots that need to be wiggled out.

    I lost a lot of the tiny ones. I should really have not wasted my time on potting them. I started out with I think six of each. Someone told me those tiny ones would never make it but it was really had to toss them. Some died almost immediately. Some struggled and then just sort of disappeared. The lager ones just over taking the smaller ones. I don't think I will ever buy anything just out flask, again. I buy seedlings quite often but they are probably a couple of years old. I'll probably need a wheelchair when and if these grow out to visit them. They will take forever to bloom.

    Doesnt matter at least those remain there will make you happy forever now your next step which is more challenging is how to facilitate the growth pattern in term of size and color of the leaves based on my observation by adding organic material together with inorganic they getting bigger and longer by 4 year usually it will ready to bloom. Some of the orchids grower here they used bats dung and they claimed the outcome is amazing how they do I'm not that sure.

    They are potted in peralite. And the ones that I moved have a tree fern fiber in the baskets. I spray them with sea kelp. I don't think I can find any bat dung, here Zain But maybe a little composted cow dung? But I agree they need to be stepped up into something more organic.

    If you want to use cow dung few steps you need to follow do not take the fresh one, those already few days and almost dried that is the best.
    Second you need to get hot water immediately after boiled just pour into a container containing dung to kill what ever dangerous bacterias/fungi/worms/parasites.
    Next filter get the concentrated liquids keep in bottles used small amount and dilute to fresh water and ready to use but very messy.he.he.he
