You're looking good! But not crowded yet, by any means. You don't replate until you absolutely have to. The tender youngins' don't want to be disturbed.
Replating is done when the flask has exhausted the nutrients in the jar's media. You're a long way from that. The little green boogers will pile up, like they're doing I hope I haven't given grave insult to your youngins'! But there's still plenty of media to sustain everybody.
Keep posting pics - it's fun to feel your energy! Good growing!
Thanks for the encouragement!! "Boogers in a jar" hmmmm what a concept!!! Well thanks for the compliment Grumpy. I was thinking of a movie I saw in a "critical thinking" class I took a few years ago when I took the pic. It was a close-up of an egg frying, and the goal was for the audience to identify....but it was almost impossible; such a basic thing, but when the perspective is changed, its hard to grasp. Ok, enough for adult learning theory....LOL.
How would one go about marketing "boogers in a jar"? I'm unemployed, hell, I'll try anything!! The consultants keep saying we have to be creative!!
Marketing . . . how about "Better in a jar than up your nose!"
Just a thought . . .
Well, the "boogers" are growing like weeds....I think its safe to say they are no longer in the booger category...they're actually baby orchids!!!!
Oh wow, that is so cool! I will not be attempting flasking for many many years so it is so cool to see yours and them doing so well! Lots and lots of babies and to think I thought my seedlings were small! Well done and I hope they continue to grow and thrive when defalsking time comes along.
Thanks for the update, Terry. That is awesome. They look very healthy.
Nice! It's fun watching your progress.
My first flasking attempt was just a complicated way of mass producing contaminants. Well done.
Woo hoo. Well done Terry. Can we pleeeeeeease have an update?
