    Default Orchid protocorns with keiki :D

    hi,
    i am soooooo excited about this, i found a orchid protocorn with keiki and roots in one of my orchid pots. so far i had only two seed that i scatter around, one is my first catasetum hybrid while the other is my phalenopsis pulcherrima seed. but from the leave of the keiki, i think it resembles more of catasetum. what do you all think?

    the three orange line are pointing towards the three new growths. i transferred it to a clay pot with loosely packed sphag moss

    thanks everyone, me too is inspired by this. i guess i will order online for the flasking media to try out my three catasetum seedpods that will mature in about 7-8months time instead of DIY media.

    that should not be of a problem if we are living in the same continent.
