    Default care of seedlings after deflasking

    i am running out of space! until i get more, my solution has been to stop (okay, slow down) on buying plants and start buying flasks. to date i have about 7 of them, all over the board. i'm pretty sure i have the deflasking down, thanks to you folks. now i can't seem to find how to care for the little ones after they have been potted up. i know to mist them daily. my question is what type of light requirements do they have? i have stanhopea, gongora, catts, enc., gongora, psychopsis. the encyclia seem to be doing well on the back porch, out of direct sun. i think i killed another flask of them when i rearranged the porch and they ended up in the sun for an hour or so. the rest i have on the kitchen counter, but today moved them to where they are about 14 inches under a florescent light. so where should i have them? inside, outside? thanks!

    I am not giving mine too much light (keep them with the phals) and they are doing great. When I start repotting them in individual pots I will start increasing the light little by little.

    thanks, margo. have you noticed they never cheat you on a flask. "contains about 15" really means about 100!

    LOL! Some of them have more, some have less! But if you are now running out of space I don't know what you are going to do when in a few months you are going to pot each one in its own pot... (not that I know what I am going to do... I have 11 (four new that I will deflask today) and 3 of them are big- appx 30-40 babies in it and that would mean 200...lol
