De-flaking Question

Post by Mervin » Tue Mar 27, 2012 8:23 pm

Greetings to all !

I have a flask with aerial roots that are super long, almost touching the top of the glass beaker.

Now do I bury them in moss or let them be outside ?

Thank you.

Cheers

If there are none growing down you need to bury a few. If there are plenty going down then just leave them the way they are.

Good answer. I agree. If you try to manipulate the roots you might end up breaking it. Besides, seedlings out of flasks should be in a high humidity enclosure. Don't use wet moss. It needs to be moist - try to squeeze out every drop of water.
