    Default Deflasking orchids - Hope I got it right this time

    After I did everything wrong the first time here is what I did today:
    I put the flask in a plastic bag and used a towel to brake it. Bath: approx. 2L water + 1/2 cup sugar and just a spray of fungicide (no strong smell this time! LOL). In the tray I have orchid mix in the bottom and sphagnum on top. They will stay there for a couple of weeks until I receive the individual pots.

    Looks good. Just be sure to keep the humidity pretty high these first couple of days--they are adjusting to the cold, cruel, not so humid and sterile world.
