    Default Deflasking my babies

    I decided it was time to deflask. They had consumed most of the agar and were large enough. Nine compots all together I need lots more space. Three are from flasks that were given to me (2 species, 1 hybrid) and the other 6 are my crosses.

    That's what they call them. Out of flask and clustered in a pot till they're ready for their own pot. It also helps the newly deflasked with some humidity control as they adjust to the cruel outside world.
