Re: Phalaenopsis Mituo Blue Smurfs

Peter, Love the name on this! Love all of the flowers even more. Would be happy with any of these.

Can you tell me if the spikes are slow to develop? The one I have it seems its spike is growing very slowly or maybe it has stalled due to the heat of the past month or so.

Re: sumatrana x violacea indigo

I do believe that is one of JimL's own crosses. He sometimes sells on ebay.

Re: sumatrana x violacea indigo

That's really nice Jim. Love how the sumatrana came thru, makes it look like the flower has tiger stripes.

Re: Where did Adrienne go?

Cody, I just saw and talked with Adrienne last week. She's fine.

She's been very, very busy as Pres of the MOS ( just ended), involved with the IPA and Orchid Digest, among other things.

She told me she should be back soon. Just when soon is she didn't quite say.

Have no fear, all is well.

Re: Phalaenopsis Formosa San Fan

It's not 'Nobby" or Chin Ruey' is it? is it a remake?

It's cute and kinda reminds me of something tie-dyed.

Re: How do you get more than one plant from a stem prop

While waiting for the lids to the baby food jars to come the few stems I had turned yellow and started drying up so I only have a stem from a 3N plant.

Are 3Ns' any more difficult to stem prop than 2N or 4N?

Wondering if I should even bother now.

Thoughts anyone?

Re: How do you get more than one plant from a stem prop

Thanks Rob just wanted to be sure.

So save the P668 for flasking and go with the 0753 for stems.

I appreciate the help and all the info both of you have provided. :)

Re: How do you get more than one plant from a stem prop

This media can be your basic media such as P668 or P656. Herein lies an advantage somewhat of not using the BAP. You might only get 1-2 plants, but they start forming roots quickly, the plants grow faster, and you often have ready to pot out plants well in advance of stems initiated with the hormon...

Re: How do you get more than one plant from a stem prop

Thanks for the additional info Ben.

Since you use the O753 have you ever tried it just as it is without any additional BAP or coconut water? If so, what were the results.

Aaron says it can be used just as it is and get stems. After reading both your and Rob responses I'm beginning to wonder.
