This is a discussion on Orchid protocorns with keiki :D within the Flasking Equipment & Technique forums, part of the Orchid Propagation category; Originally Posted by catasetum-ian that should not be of a problem if we are living ...
Ian, hows about doing the bleach thing, then picking it up with tweezers, and looking at it under a magnifing glass to see if the rot is gone? This little orchid is soooooooooooo unique that I don't want to see you lose it...Just my thoughts on the subject.....Betty
so now finger are cross and hope for the best. thank you so so so so much Betty
Ian, did you put sulphur power on the cut? That will kill the bacteria & help heal. I'm hoping that it will recover...Betty
came back today just to find that the black spot keep spreading and this time infecting the keiki as well, entire plant is gone now.
So sorry for your loss mate. Very unfortunate with a unique plant
I'm sorry, Ian...Guess it was just too late. These things spread very fast.....Betty
Ali and Betty, thanks for the comforting words. no doubt frustration is booming high at time like this, but at the same time, it also drove me to try harder in the future to produce more orchid protocorn, especially with asymbiotic germination.
