    Default seedlings at 7 months

    Here are my seedlings at 7 months. Some look ready to be moved to individual pots, which I'll probably do after the holidays. They are currently in a large 12 x 20 tray with six 4x6 subtrays. I'll probably repot into small square containers with sphagnum initially.

    It's a cross I made and sent out for flasking. Parents are Mini-purple 'Blue Hawaiian' and Brabantiae. I made a similar cross a few years ago and am expecting fragrant pink flowers with darker lip and hopefully a few with freckles. Then I want to cross the ones with freckles. This time I want to keep much better track of what happens. I'm more having fun and satisfying my curiosity than anything else.

    Very cool, Janet. I'm impressed with your adventure and look forward to seeing the results. Thank you.

    BTW, do you know the parents of the Brabantiae? Maybe (C. loddigesii v. coerulea 'Blue Sky’ AM/AOS x C. aclandiae v. coerulea ‘Blue Sky’ HCC/AOS)

    So Janet, you are having success growing the seedlings under LED, right?
    (the catt brabantiae is a beauty by the way)

    They're under fluorescent lights. The LED light I was testing is not really big enough. When I move some of the seedlings into their own pots, I will try putting some under the LED panel.
