    Default Removing Paph. seedlings from flask...

    Well, today I spent most of the day potting up some seedlings. We got a couple of flasks awhile back and they were becoming over grown. So, I decided to pot up the seedlings. I documented that whole event for the forum. What follows is our process. This is one way of doing this type of work. I am sure others have different ways. I hope you enjoy the photos and the process. I had fun preparing it for the forum.

    Very nice, Bruce!

    It's time consuming, but I love making up photo essays! I enjoy reading others' even more!

    Many flaskers now ship in sterile plastic bags I've noticed. You don't see as much glass these days. Did you flask those yourselves?

    That looks like a superb roths cross, too! Nice!

    Good luck to all the lil' fellers!
