    Did the seedlings arrive this large or did you get them a few weeks now? What special treatment are you giving until the roots are okay? They look well.

    @Bruce: I just place them on a mesh table i made out in my greenhouse,air circulation is good here so no problem with them getting fungus or the dreaded rot.They will be in that manner for about a week or two until new roots are evident.Then they are potted individually in 3.5inch vanda plastic baskets.


    @Dail: Yes they arrive big and healthy, i was quite happy about it since i was expecting small plants turns out to be bigger than i thought. For treating newly arrived seedlings i first air them overnight and the next day soak them in weak solution of fertilizer and Physan ( a disinfectant) for about an hour and air dry them again then place them in group as seen in my picture.What you see here are a day old from the time they arrived.

    By the way, here's the names of the seedlings i got:

    Mericlones:
    V. Manuvadee FCC
    V. Pachara Delight FCC/JOGA
    V. Ratchaburi Thanasiri
    V. Ratchaburi Pink
    Hybrids:
    V. Pimchai Beauty - Taweesuksa X V. coerulea
    V. Soroa Cherry Bomb X V. Bitz Heartthrob
    V. Pure's Wax X V. Bitz Heartthrob
    V. Dr. Anek FCC X V. Bitz Heartthrob

    Not bloomed for me yet, I guess they will bloom this year. Pimchai beauty is smaller but V Anek X V. BH is a very big plant around 2 feet, should definitely flower this year.
