    Default Compot refurbishing

    When do you guys think it's time to move these little fellas to a bigger house (2 compots with 3 plants)? This is my first compot so I don't really have any idea how it works..

    I would be moving them on in about a months time as the weather is getting warmer.

    they are looking fantastic, Richard! What are they?

    I'd also wait for the warm weather, unless of course you grow in a very controlled environment, and then you can move em anytime you see active growth.

    Richard, you would laugh out loud if you could see my compot of a similar paph. We put several little seedlings right out of flask into a 'cool whip' container that I drilled holes into the bottom of for drainage. The paphs are so large now they look like they could bloom! You have time with these. I will have to find a photo or take one to show you. I am way behind on maintenance in the Greenhouse on things like this! hehehe....

    Cheers,

    seedlings like to be grouped together. Even in individual pots I keep them together b/c my pots are square and fit together nicely (plus it saves space).

    I don't think I have as much to maintain compared to you I think could invent a new disease/bug every day by looking at my collection (limited) way too much.
