    Over the last few years I have enjoyed raising flask. The good part is that most have done well. The down size is the space they take up in a year or two. Previously, I have sold my extras on eBay and will likely do that again. Before I start that up, I will be posting a few seedlings here. All of these will be appropriately harden out of the flask - for minimum 6 months, but generally 12-18 months.

    First up Rhyncolaelia glauca var alba:

    from Left to right:
    • Compot of 5 small seedlings (~1.5" leaves) -$10
    • Compot of 2-3 seedlings (~2" leaves/ seedling a clustered together) - $10
    • 3 seedlings (2.5-3" leaves) each in 2 inch pots ($7 each)
    Postage would be about $8-10.

    Next Cattleya Gaudii var coerulea from Sunset Valley - 2 for $18 20190509_124925.jpg
    Sunset Valley Orchids - Superior Hybrids for Orchid Enthusiasts:
    These are much larger seedling. I purchased them last spring, but I need to get curb my larger growing Cattleya's due to space. These are only in 3 inch pots now, but they will be sizable when matured.

    Thanks, Marni. I really enjoy watching them grow. I wish I had more space, but I don't want to take over the entire house... Yet
