    These Phrag. besseae seedlings had been deflasked for 10 days. The agar was removed carefully without disturbing their entangled roots. They were put as a compot with very loose packed sphagnum moss as the media. The light was nearly 500 fc for 12 hours a day. The humidity should be high, because I put a cover dome on the whole pot and ventilated occasionally. The temperature was kept around 25℃.They seemed to be good. The problem is why the leaves became gradually curved?

    Looks like healthy, typical deflasked plants. Keep doing what you're doing, they seem happy.

    Probably just flexing after being cramped up in the flask. They look good to me! Keep doing what you are doing.

    They look fantastic. Forget the leaves. Its roots you need.
