    Default Phal seedling culture

    I went to an "Enabler Sale" today. Ok, it wasn't really called that, but the prices were so cheap I thought I was in the dollar store. Anyhow, I bought 8 phal seedlings, most of which have a 4" leaf span. Of them, 6 are hybrids , the other 2 are species. What requirements do these younging need, and how different are their needs from mature plants?

    Traci, I just got 5 phal seedlings I'm trying for the first time. They've got a really nice root structure, so I've got them outside, on lower shelves, so they're getting less light than the grown up ones on top. I didn't want to burn their tender leaves. But, other than that, I'm treating them the same as the big phals unless I hear that I shouldn't. I've got them in sphagnum in little clay pots with styro peanuts on the bottom. I'm trying Dynamite slow release fertilizer, so I gave them just a little; I use SuperThrive occasionally. That's it.

    So, how cheap was your enabler sale? I have to know if I got ripped off.
