    I deflasked the plants in october and out of 25 plants (with four really small ones that died the first night.. grrrr) only 10 are left...

    they were put in single pots except for about seven fairly small plants. I completely removed the agar and put them into a plain bark mix.

    the ones that survived are the ones in the single pots except for one little one which seems to be hanging on for dear life...

    I found that the ones that died did so because of water lodging in the leaves causing rot, so now they only get watered from the bottom or at least only the mix gets watered and no water at all is put on the leaves... i will blow dry the plant if any water gets there at all...

    I'm gonna have to try the oyster shell... hopefully that will help...

    how big do they have to be before flowering? the largest of mine has a leaf span of 4.25 inches...

    I always found that whenever i put into single pots immediately, that the seedlings always lingered and grew much slower than when I clumpped them.

    Rotting...that is one thing with brachys in general. they can rot VERY quickly.

    It depends on the cross, as far as leaf span. I have some that only reach about 4.25 inches while others are around 8-9 inches. How many sets of leaves do they have?

    yeah rot... hate it! do you think it would help to use a systemic fungicide?

    the largest plant has four leaves, 6 have three leaves (but many are only small) and 5 have only two leaves... a couple have new leaves starting to poke out.. or at least I think they are leaves... (yep the numbers have increased... just found two more plants in between the Michael Koopowitzes.. woo hoo)

    oh and my experience with compotting is bad... very bad... I think I water too much and so compots tend to stay wet longer = rot.

    Great blooms, Lien! I love the look of the lip. Kind of like Jimmy Durante LOL. Could you post a side or angle view?

    See all these splendid paphiopedilum enchants me enormously. Moreover, except the delenatii alba whose form is debatable, it is my preferred orchids kind.

    I like much to see your paph because it really are very selected.

    Merci
