    Default First time deflasking Phal

    First time to deflask Phal seedling!
    I'm not sure what is the breed name but the seller told me that the flower will be large white!
    The medium i used : styrofoam at bottom and NZ Spagnum Moss at the top in take-away food container (+ holes at suroundings)
    bottol wrap with plastic bags and news paper is enough to crack the bottle!

    I have heard cinnamon will retard root growth don't know if there is anything to that or not . I use it on leaf damage , insecticide not needed unless they have them . Nice healthy looking seedlings Gin

    It won't be long before you have a forest of Phals. (It will only seem like forever!)

    They look great!

    Over time they can fall subject to fungus or rot. I'd suggest a periodic spray of a dilute fungicide.
