    They look good Cathy, thanks for sharing. I'm pretty sure I know the lady you are talking about. I bought 5 flasks of diff species from her last fall. I put them in sphagnum moss and they all survive 100%. I like her flasks the roots are strong and healthy, V bensonii is next in my list maybe this week. I have not tried using just perlite but I want to try that next time. Thanks for the idea, Roy.

    Nicely done Cathy, but I am not sure about the bag. Mine do not like it that way, however many holes you punch. I have had good success with perlite and coconut husk, but I keep it open, allowing it to dry and then misting it to ensure moisture.

    Amey, I agree about the bag. It is on very lose with the sides split. I was just trying a little extra humidity as I hardened them off. It will be off by the weekend.
    Thanks everyone.
