    Default Some work ahead in a few months.

    Compots of Catt seedlings I deflasked a couple of weeks ago. Didn't want to but had to. Beed in flask long enough. All my own crosses. Only a small part of the expected shipment due over the next few months.. Not sure of exact amount of plants per compot, 25 minimum.

    I suppose that they will stay in the compots until overcrowded ? Presumably a good many different grex here.
    Quite outside my experience this kind of orchid work ; I can only stand back in admiration.
    I have made pods a good few times in my life but passed them on to others to raise ; tried my hand at seed-sowing a few times, but had no luck with seedlings appearing. I even tried meristemming once - bought a binocular microscope for the purpose - no joy there, either.
    One can't do everything.

    I look at this & think Why??, Getting a bit long in the tooth for all this. Then again, I'm a stubborn old bloke who is going to stick around to see these flower.

    You will be very busy later Roy as the seedlings looks so healthy and the growth rate is fantastic hope no back pain.

    Back hurts just looking at them Zain. I'll leave them as they are for as long as I can but starting next Spring is when the work will start I think.
