I've got a couple of these in spike as well. These have been really good growers for me. Jim's container trick is great for seedlings.

Nothing special about it actually just a great idea. Take any clear container, put plants on, close container, and let hang out for a year or so. The humidity helps them grow like weeds if the light isnt too much and the heat is right. I use a 12" x 16" x 6" tall one at the moment. Actually about 6 of them. They work great.

Thanks. I've got a few of these going as well. Eager to see results. Didn't mean to hijack the thread.

It's okay. I remember there is a topic where Jim showed pictures of his growing containers. Humidity is the key to grow seedlings from flasks.

I use JimL containers. It has marked a turning point in getting my seedlings going. One of the best things I've done.

The key to this container trick is to not think it through too much. I've seen some complicated contraptions for seedlings but it's not necessary. Like Jarad said, just pot them up in moss and put them in there and keep the cover on. Like any newly potted seedlings, they will need low light and heat for about 2-4 weeks to get established before you give them higher heat and light. They'll want to grow fast in these conditions so they'll need a lot of fertilizer once you see them growing. Keep them wet after they get established or they can get set back. Mold doesn't seem to be a big issue because they will be very healthy in these conditions and will be able to resist infection.

If you grow in a greenhouse, you'll have to keep them more dry in the winter and fertilize less when it's cooler and the days are shorter. This works best indoors under lights when you can keep the light and temperature higher and more consistent.

Two more from this cross blooming. Like JimL said, it's so nice these bloom on smaller plants. Both of these are nice flowers but #2 is so rich in color it's awesome. It's not as green as the lighting indicates but I'll have to take another photo of these outside.

Great job Jarad. Let's see these next season on stronger plant. We should see better form and flower count from Phal Buena Jewel contribution.
