    Hi All, been a long time since I’ve posted anything. Having a long layover so will try a few. These are a couple photos of first bloom seedlings that were a flask from Marni. The second plant is really dark red and being in a compot, was not in a real bright location. I still like to use the name Sophronitis...just gives me a better image in my mind.

    Update...compots a year later. I just mounted them all in the last week. I soaked the compots first and they came apart quite easily.

    Also had a misspelling on the original posting...should be mantiquierae.

    You have done really well with those. I've always grown mine mounted but your seedlings look great. Are they in moss?

    Thanks Marni, Yes, they were in a couple inches of moss with styrofoam peanuts underneath. They are now all mounted.

    Nice! The one in the newest photo looks like really deep red.
