SEEDLINGS: Culture For techniques and procedures, culture media, source of supplies, for tropical and terrestrial types, refer to OB11-243 0
SEEDLINGS: Cymbidiums Planted in Flats of Sphagnum Moss Moss is dead, obtained from Wisconsin, comes in bales of five cu.ft. and bought at florists' supply center; soak it in water, roll into bundles, place in flats, flatten with concrete block so it is firmly packed and about three inches deep; plant the seedlings. A64-762 0
SEEDLINGS: Phalaenopsis Flowering can be achieved in less than two years from flask through proper timing, deflask in winter or spring plant into large pots, feed frequently, grow in 40% of total light and water or syringe accordingly. F85-125Remain runty and have not flowered for years = they are too dry; good culture is the best treatment. A75-1007 0
SEEDLINGS: Replating in Pop-bottles Plastic two-liter bottles can be used to grow community seedlings of phalaenopsis successfully; in a mix of small bark, fine charcoal and one-third sphagnum moss. OIE86Jan-15; Jy-6; 87Mar 7 0
SEEDLINGS: Runts If retardation is not caused by culture the plants should be weeded out. A76-611 0
SEEDLINGS: The Clump Method of Deflasking For Lycastes it is advisable to remove the seedlings from the flask in a clump and not to separate the roots after washing off the agar; plant the whole thing in a bark community pot. A82-913 0
SEEDLINGS: Treatment Their culture from flask to flowering, with considerable detail; refer to OD68-6+ 0
SEEDLINGS: Unbloomed Purchasers sometimes gamble that their chance of getting an award-winning plant from a batch of unbloomed seedlings is better on the theory that if it had already bloomed and was not sold it must have not been worth much; not always the case. A87-616 0
