Looks like a toss up. The left one is bigger.

If they are the same plant, the bigger one with more healthy roots. If they are different, which anticipated flowers do you prefer?

who would send you a plant to pick?
That's interesting.

Anyway like I predicted Spiceotics have lots of Rhyncholstylis Gigantea fresh in stock now

They are ~£40 but at least they are flowering size. For the size it looks like an alright deal

I've now recieved them and they're in decent condition. How and when should I go about unmounting them?

How do you intend to grow them? They are picky about repotting, and their roots are fragile.

Semi hydro. I've now since dettached them as I've seen some people say about remove Cattleya from their mount on the day if arrival and keeping them bare root for a few days so any damage develops a callous.

I removed it and really caused minimal damage; I'm quite surprised to be honest.

Those are nice looking plants!

Do you plan on moving them to semi hydro immediately? While I do see some nice looking active root tips on the larger plants, neither seem to have any new roots starting now.
