    Just last week, I successfully won a Mostlyspecies flask of Neofinetia falacata Koganenishiki x Baekun (Setsuzan type variegation).

    I have high hopes for these seedlings to develop into lovely plants. I have potted these into NZ sphagnum moss, 3 plants per pot. One plant was large enough to pot on its own.. My condition here is very low humidity so I am using parfait plastic cups to keep their humidity higher. They are growing under lights. I'll keep them growing like this for a month or so and then slowly harden them off.

    Thank you Marni!

    Thank you both for your comments. Marni, I had 29 seedlings. Every single one had strong root systems.
