    I love Encyclia crosses. Looks like it will be a good match. Good luck with that.

    Nice work, doodlekitty. I am also new at the flask game. I have my first successful set in a compot now, and am placing the larger ones into their own little pots one by one. So far they all look happy.

    What are yours, doodle? Mine are dendrobium antennatum.

    Hi dsm, they are an enc. & blc. cross. I seem to have gotten the "flask fever" because I have a new one waiting to be deflasked. I ALSO have a couple of pods that should be ready to be sown soon but I'm far from being set up to do that so I'll send them off.
