    Default My New Little Babies

    I recieved these little ones from a grower in Hawaii. He didn't have a larger one, so he sent me 2 in 2 in pots. They are completely in Spag moss. I am wondering if I should put these together in a larger pot with fir bark or separately potted. I gotta get them out of that moss. They are Slc Angel's Fantasy. Yes, that is shotgun shells behind them. What can I say, I am a Texan by birth and still here. Here is what these little ones should look like in flower.Name:  SLC Angel Fire.JPG

    Hi Linda, I would pot them seperately in orchid bark. Sooner or later you'll have to seperate them and since they already are seperate, well.....

    that is some hot colour on the expected blooms!
    yes seaparate pots, if they are not mericlones they are also not going to be the same either.
    And bark is probably best for catts, since sphag can easily rot those roots if they are watered root often

    Nice ones....although if I were expecting a large plant and got two small ones I'm thinking I'd be bummed.

    I'm not bummed. The orchid I expected wasn't much bigger than these. This is a great grower. Thanks everyone for your responses. I have a couple of 4 in clay orchid pots I can put them in. I like plastic, but these will do.
