    Thanks, maybe they'll give me nice blooms in 3 years I'll probably stay away from buying seedlings, but this is definitely going to be a learning experience for me.

    I have some plants still alive and growing well that I received as seedlings. While the idea of waiting for 3 years to see a flower sounds daunting, keep in mind; those babies will adapt to your growing conditions and regimen much easier than a plant spoiled for years in someones greenhouse. Also, when they bloom it's going to be really cool to be able to say we did it. The babies I have are much more forgiving than my big spoiled greenhouse raised plants.
    Hang in there....

    Default orchid seedlings.

    I have bought quite a few seedlings, as being inexperienced, I thought it would be a good way to expand my collection. Some come bare rooted, some in tiny 1inch pots, others in green net. so far, touch wood, I've managed to keep them alive and actually growing, all be it very slowly. Those that needed hanging are in globes and basket and a couple plastic pots that I hung.
    I look at it the same way as I did my horses and still do. There's far more satisfaction growing/producing your own youngstock than buying ready made. My first orchids were fully grown when I started about 6 months ago. I then decided to jump in the deep end and buy youngstock and have the satisfaction of being able to say " I grew that from a baby". I have a couple vendors that send me very good plants, and one who sends good plants but very small. So far only one has arrived "dead" and that was a week or two ago when we had a very cold spell and the plant got nearly frozen and arrived very soggy. I was re-inbursed immediately. The vendor lives almost the other side of the world to me.
    I hope you enjoy raising your seedlings and they give you much pleasure.
