    Okay it’s all done! WHEW!

    Here are the pics from beginning to end of my new Lc. Gold Digger X Enc. ochrantha seedlings!!

    Coir Medium:



    Bath for seedlings with a small amount of fungicide and some sugar:



    The Flask!!



    I taped it up to prevent glass from going all over when I shatter the bottle:



    One hit and the bottom cracked right off:



    Plop into the bath:



    With some gloves on I gently separated them in the bath:



    Here they are from large to small starting with two XL seedlings:



    The large to medium group:



    The small guys:



    The really really small guys who may not survive:



    It was too messy to take pics after this so all I have for you is the final result:



    Most have styrofoam in the bottom except the larger two which have a bark seedling mix.

    I water and misted them afterwards and now I am going to relax because I have a headache...lol.

    I was surprised how many were in there. There were at least 24 medium to large size plants and another 8 or so small that I put in a clay compot. The last two on the right probably have another 30-40 tiny plants that I doubt many will make it, but I want to at least give them a chance.

    Finally getting my headache under control too...that project took me awhile.

    Nice work, Shann. I know how long that takes. I appreciate you taking photos to share with us of your process. Best of luck to you and great success with these. I look forward to seeing photos of them when they are blooming.

    Cheers,

    You had so many seedlings in that flask!!!
    And the larger ones are so big and healthy, I bet you won't have to wait many years before they bloom ...
