    Default Showing Off seedling orchids from Florida

    See what came home from Florida with me this past week.... sure hope I don't knock them off next week, 'cause then I'll have to go back down there and get more! They are all "seedlings" and only $5.00 each...I guess that's a reasonable price...

    nice! but be careful about watering...many appear to be over potted and it will take time for them to dry between watering. I pot little seedlings in 2" pots

    Thanks, Ron. Ididn't have any 2" plastic or clay, for that matter. So I used what I had and know that it will take time to dry but it is a course mix and my GH isn't anywhere near as humid as their previous home.. And thanks again for the heads up

    Aha, you did have fun at those greenhouses didn't you!? lol I was wondering how many you'd bought...when I saw them I teased my OH that at least I didn't buy THAT many today. lol He didn't see the humor At All!
