    Thanks Amey. There is no water in the bowl. They are just in there because I plan to grow them in vases when they are bigger. Just like all my other Vandaceous orchids.
    So for now I keep them in the bowls so I can soak them in there and give fertilizer.

    So if I understand correctly you just removed them from the flasks, cleaned the agar and then let them sit without any medium? Misting and soaking them occasionally? Can you upload a bigger picture showing them in detail, I am really fascinated with your method of deflasking.

    I did upload a picture from up close. As you can see They are in an empty bowl. I just mist them. Soaking I do twice a week with fertilizer. They already have a lot of nice new roots.
    So I guess they like it. In the morning I have them in the sun for a short while. Not to long.
    So far they do fine.

    Thanks Al. I must say I'm really pleased with it so far. May be some more tender loving care.

    Hi Jason. I guess You're right about that. I knew you would. It's just so tempting to try it. I'm not really familiar with those species, but I guess the care is pretty much the same with all Vanda's. I did break the flask in a bowl of water. I must admit that was quite a tough job. Then I rinsed the agar off. After that I just put them in the bowl that you see on the picture. I mist them a few times a day. Twice a week I soak with fertilizer. The first time I let them stand in the shade. After a while I begin to adjust them to the sun, but very slowly. I don't know how you would like to grow them In vase or in basket. If you like to grow them in vase you can keep them in the bowl. I like those species. Sounds good.

    Cheers Willeke
