Cool, thanks Shady. I have one growing well, but I love the miniature species, so it never hurts to have some extras!

I throughly sprayed a shallow container and a ziploc bag with Lysol Spray.
I microwaved seedling mix for the base of the container, in some water to sterilise.




I also microwaved the sphag moss because it was a sample pack, no-name brand and it looked green in parts.
I thoroughly rinsed the pot before packing the seedling mix and then a thin layer of sphag moss on top.
I then placed the pot into the rinsed out ziploc bag, leaving it slightly opened.
I used the above methods/processes after reading up on all the different methods mentioned here on OB and elsewhere.

Hopefully I get the seedlings tomorrow. My next worry is to keep the package warm enough, I have to make space on one of my heating mats but its the ambient temp that is the main worry.
I have split out Lycaste and Miltoniopsis compots - without a fungal/bacterial subsequent hassle and without going to the trouble above ! Fingers crossed on this one of much smaller seedlings.

Mine are on the way too! I am going to sterilize another batch of moss tonight. I cleaned off the shelf where they will be cooking for awhile. I have a T5 light right over it and my Tupperware boxes ready.

and I was also just advised that my some of my phal flasks, as well as my zygo flasks, will be ready to compot next month. These are my own crosses.

So the method I used as well as others - please post yours ! - are going to be invaluable in me deciding how to compot these new ones..
