Flasks (Project 15 - Spring 2013)
Default

I'm envious of that one! I've deflasked tonight, but haven't got time now to post the pics (got to do my quota of writing for my course before heading to bed... OK I admit it, going to do some writing before watching a late night repeat of Game Of Thrones!)

My project flask wasn't what I'd planned... of course, the one's I'd seen online weren't available at the show! In the end I had a choice between some commercial type hybrids, which didn't appeal, gigantica (too big and not keen anyway), equestris (were tiny...) stuartiana (my friend took those... hopefully she's joining the project!) and the one I got, which is ambioenses. (apologies for spelling mistakes... it's too late to look them up!) Not really on my wish list... but it was pretty much wait ages for the equestris or go for the one desperate to be deflasked! Plus I thought it might be easier to rehome extra seedlings!

I've also got a second flask: dendrobium cyanocentrum from Equatorial Plants: been on my wish list for ages and it's a lovely looking flask. I'm going to give it a few weeks though hopefully.

Plus I somehow ended up with a Doritis pulcherimia hybrid, a well-grown max. picta (since I recently killed my two seedlings) and an in-flower phal stuartiania var nobilis, which I wasn't really expecting... I think it was 75 the first day of the show, but it dropped in price considerably for the last day sell off!

I'm jealous about your Den cyanocentrum but I won't be trying any Den flasks anymore. After killing 5 Den flasks, I just don't seem to be able to grow them from seedlings.

I do want to find one of those as a NBS or bigger for my collection.

I would like to see your progress with the Den so please post pics and your process.

I'm not sure of the plant count, but if someone wants to split or go in on it...fine with me...or you will force me to keep them all.

I'll be potting mine up into sterilized moss.

Edit to add expected bloom from this cross. This is a picture of the exact same cross from a different flask.

Edit to add - Photo taken by Adrienne Giovino at the Norton Greenhouse in 2012.


Very nice one.... Such a beauty

Bummer for me though. She emailed me this morning saying she has this flask left but, I guess you just beat me to it.. I guess I'll keep looking



Edit:
Well it looks like the vendor has one more so I am definitely getting that one as well - I just fell in love with that one

Can't wait till it arrives.

Thanks for the info on growing phals in moss! I've grown some that way and they do well. There's a second way to do it though! It is how I do most of mine..

That is to pot it tightly enough that the plant doesn't wobble when the pot is moved side to side. And NOT pack it super tight as described above. I water this fully until the moss is SATURATED, I usually sit them in water for about five minutes. And then monitor the moisture levels, then water again once it's appropriate. In my conditions it's usually about two weeks between watering that way.

I like this way better because it saves moss and saves me from panicking over super tight moss. As long as it's tight enough that the plant is stable, that's tight enough for me!

Hi Josh,

Thanh said he would guarantee 15 in the flask but that I should get many more than that.

Hi All,

Here are a couple of photos from my re-pot. The Phal tetraspis 'Olympic' x self were de-flasked last August. The misc. Catt hybrids are just over a year out of flask.

These are in clay pots as we tend to water more in our shadehouse during the spring/summer. I find that plastic keeps some orchids too moist so I use them sparingly.

Wanna share a small compot with me? Like 3-4? PM me if you want so we don't clutter up the thread.

Jarad,

The gibbosa is not ready yet. I've been waiting on it for over a year from Meyers Conservatory. I don't expect that it will get here for this project.

If you are interested in flasks from Meyers, I suggest calling him after the 23rd to find out what he has that is ready. He only makes flasks to reservation which is why they take so long. He might have a few in stock that are ready to go.
