    33. Take the hammer and gently hit the base of the flask. You can hear the flask cracking sound.

    This way the small glass peace’s will not spread around.

    34. Open the newspaper and you will notice the flask fully broken.

    Caution: very careful while removing the broken glass peace’s. They are very sharp.

    44. First time plant is taking external water, so DON'T OVER WATER.

    DON'T add any orchid fertilizer at the moment. They are sensitive roots and need some time to settle down.

    47. All twenty ports are ready.

    48. Shifted all twenty pots under shadow area (Full day shadow ) and left it for 1 wk.

    49. Left over small green roots placed on money plant (Scindapsus aureau or Phaphidophora aureu ). More than two weeks they are still green.


    Day 20 noticed , fungus on bamboo sticks, so I removed all the bamboo sticks.

    So for 30 days ....
    Regularly monitoring the plants all are healthy and green.




    Orchid Guru’s please review this and advise any changes/modifications/care need to be taken.

    Thank you

    Great post for those who do this, at my age it takes too long for them to bloom.
