    Default Neofinetia seedlings from flask.

    Hey everyone. Thanks for reading.

    I recently got a hold of some lovely neofinetia seedlings from a flask. And about 3 days into having them they have started growing mold on the roots. My dendrobium unicum seedlings are all fine which I ordered with them but the neofinetia need help.
    I don't ever or under water them. And they are in a vented aquarium with a single t5 light and an led light from josh's frogs.
    My firat thought is that they might need time to dry out between watering. Anyone else ever have these guys from a flask before?

    Try increasing air movement, as they are fine with stronger wind.

    Update. After moving them to the greenhouse they have stared growing new roots. Normally I grow all my orchids strictly organic. But with my seedlings I started using physan 20 allong with a teeny pinch of dyna gro grow. So far we have new root growth. Slow as it may be.

    Hello JMkentzel, how are your seedlings doing? When you moved them into your green house did they start growing larger?
