    Talking My little orchid babies are doing great!

    I deflasked for the first time on May 28th and got 70+ babies. I gave EVERYONE a chance....even a clump of roots that was in there with no leaves (I can now see a few tiny little leaves growing on it!!) It's almost been a month now and all of my little guys are growing great!! They're getting big and getting new leaves and new roots. I've only lost one, but that was because I think there might have been a little bit of mold on the roots. I'd rather be safe and only lose one, than be sorry and lose the entire compot it was in.
    I just wanted to share because I'm incredibly proud of myself so far! Hopefully things keep going as good as they are.

    Thank you. And I'm charging my camera battery right now and will take some pictures as soon as it's ready. Hopefully I'll get them posted later today.

    Thank you everyone. And they're Pot. Tokyo Bay 'Victory'.....at least that's what I was told they were and that's what they were labeled when I received them.

    Ever since I put them outside, they've turned a not-so-appealing color of green....but they're all doing great. So I don't know what I should do. I'm sure they'll adjust soon and become that beautiful shade of green they once were.
    1The first picture is 1 of 2 huge clumps of plants that I couldn't get apart when I deflasked.
    2Second picture is of the random clump of roots that had no leaves. You can now see some tiny leaves starting!! It looks like there is a little bit of mold on it though.....is there anything I can do about that?
    3Third picture is of a huge new root on one of the babies.
    4Fourth picture is one of the babies I'm really interested in. To me, it looks like either 2 or 3 plants kinda morphed into one.
