    Smile Finally I can see real plants

    After 3 months seed sowing, I can see my real plants in my baby food jars not pictures on the internet. I am SO happy.

    Phalaenopsis Lavender: Took 1 months for seed to become protocorm and 2 months for protocorms to be tiny plants.







    I also test a homemade media with Dendro. Signatum: I don't see protocorm, seeds turn to plant rightaway.



    This the first time I sow seed so I have no idea how long does it take for seed to be protocorm and to be plant, If you have any information or experient please share.

    Congratulations...that's fast! But maybe that's the differnce between Phal growth speed and what I've been working with.

    Awesome growing!

    Phals are very fast. Paphs are among the slowest. Everything else is lengthy, but doable in less than geologic time.

    Thanks all!
    You encourage me very much. 3 months waiting to me is as long as 3 years. When I think it needs 3 years more to get blooming I want to quit. But I think again, what do I do during the winter. No more outdoor activitives, no fishing, no tenis, no take care of garden. It's better to sow more seeds and to perform shoot propragation indoor. Cheer.
