    Question Information About Flasking

    I've decided to try growing an Orchid, I've been given and have order different type of seeds (to give myself the best chance, they have been kept completely separate from each other though).

    This has probably been asked many times before but I have a few questions:

    1) I'm willing to spend the time and money on this, but I've learned from experience that the most expensive isn't always the best quality. What are the best flasking supplies that you've used or found?

    2) Are there any books or other media that I might be able to buy to help and/or give instructions through out the process?

    3) Is there any particular information that I should be aware of? IE: What to use, what not to use, what to be prepared for?

    Thank you to any and all that can answer some, all of these questions or just give advice!

    hi Nichole, big step with the flasking.. but others here have done the same... when they see the post, I'm sure they will chime in on how they did theirs..

    btw, here's a tutorial by one of the members here on the subject.
