Paphiopedilum orchids well established. A few additional months will be required under plant growth room conditions at the nursery to allow a dense mat of roots to develop and the leaves to 'pack tightly' in the PCC. Growth rates are very quick while the seedling are growing aseptically. Experience has shown 25 seedlings can be easily accommodated.

Why risk this?

Paphiopedilum orchids growing aseptically in PCC's. Here you can also see that the containers are vented to improve the air exchange and speed up the growth rate. The media contains charcoal which gives it the dark colour. Seedlings at the rooting stage can spend anything upto 18 months growing aseptically and contamination free. This time will vary according to the vigor of the seedlings.
