    Default Adorable!

    That is terrific! How big does that guy get total plant size? (I'm still keeping my eye out for smallish plants that I can grow in my windowsill or kitchen counter under lights).

    I have a schlimii seedling that I got 9 months ago from Mike (aka the Orchid Fairy). It's very small, 2 little leaves, and has been holding its own, but not growing. I had it outside for the summer in mostly shade. It's alive and appears fine, but just not growing. Any thoughts? Can seedlings stall this long?

    My Phrag seedlings seemed to do nothing for months(i repotted them into s/h as soon as i got them) , about 2 months ago they went into my growroom & they looked terrible.Leaves seemed to be slightly bleached & the tip of the leaves turned brown/black.
    Less feed & less light i thought but after a couple of weeks no improvement.Dropped the seedlings out of the s/h pots & was surprised to see the roots had just started to grow.Repotted them about 1" lower in the s/h & they took off like a whippet with it,s ass on fire.1 is now in full spike(Phrag ST Ouen) & it,s only about 12" LS.The roots have grown into the res & the plants look a hell of a lot healthier.
