Hi if you are living near the cost and frost free climate perhaps you could give 2. Sarc cecileae a go if not much agar left in the jar, (PS I would deflask them on to a tray of gravel the size of a pea and leave for a year or so, they hate any type of potting mix and prefer to grow on rocks etc).

The other 3 I have not deflasked although I have done some Cattley a species, they all seem to love the warm of spring summer to deflasks.
If you can supply some bottom heat and they needed to be deflasked do it now but I would like to wait to spring.
How much agar is left in the bottom of each flask.

1. Stanhopea nigroviolacea
3. Brassia giroudiana
4. Cattleya schilleriana
Hi Ron, thanks for getting back to me. They are coming from Ian at Burleigh Park Orchid Species. his communication with me was to wait until spring as they all need more growing before deflask. so i'll put them in a warm spot away from direct sun and wait it out until spring. seems to be the safest option.
