xvart, I knew it...you are not who you are on this forum.
DaveyJones, it was a back-breaking period of 3 hours with a break in-between. The potting is the easiest part...picking off the dying or dead parts is the hardest.
I do realise that steel nerves are required for this project. Especially when I am a newbie at Cephs. It can be quite stressful having to clean the plants of the debris. I can't even be sure if I had been too rough with the species which has the reputation of rotting or dying easily. The plants are from Australia which is much cooler now than where I am now...it is autumn for them, and in Singapore, we are getting into the hottest and most dry months. Well, I'll just have to monitor closely since I already have reservations for some of them.
