    Phal equestris var coerulea

    How is your growing environment? I have my eq. for nearly 10 years, which I grow in the kitchen that is quite hot, esp. in the summer. My experience is that it loves morning sun (I grow mine at the south-facing windowsill of the kitchen). Also it likes its roots to dry quickly after each...

    Phragmipedium besseae in bud

    Phragmipedium besseae
