    Well Done Bruce! Very informative article

    I have been thinking of getting compots or flasks for some time now, but I end up worrying about what to do with several dozen identical orchids when they mature.
    I can only trade so much lol.

    BTW, that hi-yield Malathion jug looks scary in the background hehehe.

    Thanks, John.

    Yes, I had a problem with some scale and had to pull out the big guns. That jug costs upwards of 50 bucks. Crazy.

    I got this compot at my orchid society auction. I hope the blooms have a lemon fragrance! I figured if they live, I can always trade some and maybe post some up for auction on Orchid-bids. I was really pleased how many roots these guys have. I hope that means that they will do well.

    Thanks for taking a look at the article and for commenting on it.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Great article and photos Bruce! Sure wish I had that nice a space to work in! I am always trashing my kitchen for projects like that. Hope they do great!

    Very nicely done, with great pictures. I am going to come back to this when I need to repot my babies.

    You can do it Richard! Take a chance. When they are out and growing, then you have orchids to trade and share. Thanks for taking a look at the article.

    I would love to try a compot someday, a cool phal maybe. As to the earlier comment about the mess tearing up their kitchen I laughed, repotting on the porch is usually is followed by my huband going out to clean up my "mess". lol He's gone clean freak lately..... too funny!
