When I was in Singapore Airport a few months ago, I picked up a flasked cattleya to take home with me. Recently, I have noticed condensation on the inside of the flask, and what looks like dirt at the bottom of the gel. I have no knowlege of t/c, but to me these things seem point to the seal being broken, and that the gel/inside is no longer sterile . Is this the case? If so, how do I deflask the orchid and then grow it- media, temps, light etc etc?
Here are some pics:
The stuff at the bottom of the gel:
Should I be worrying?!
