    kovachii challenge

    The moss grew on their own due to spraying every morning, don't know why they don't grow in the big pots. I do like the natural look they give and If the moss help in any way it would be a bonus.

    kovachii challenge

    Thank you! I have used 1:1:1 akadama, pumice and fine bark and a bit crushed oyster shells. The seedlings are in 1:1:1 fine grade clay pebbles, perlite, fine bark and some smaller grade oyster shells. In both cases there's 1/3 organic and 2/3 inorganic in the mixture. I just started using...

    Phragmipedium kovachii

    Kanuma is for acid loving plants, you should try akadama instead.

    Hello from Greece!

    Welcome from a fellow newbie Konstantinos. Do you have any pictures of the Stanhopea tigrina and other orchids growing on olive trees? Must be a wonderful view!

    Sorry guys, it's a mistery to me why some of you can's see the pictures. I did nothing odd, placed them from ImageShack via the "inset image" button on the message toolbar. Here are the links: http://imageshack.com/i/exqmyNlSj http://imageshack.com/i/f0erRs8Tj...

    kovachii challenge

    Allright, so multiple growth is common with kovachii even with young plants, that's a relief. They have not been cleaned. I believe Kovachii leaves are shiny by nature. I was least concerned by the dull leaves, I thought it could be a cultural thing. It came potted in bark, I repotted in...

    I don't know what I did wrong making the pictures not visible to everyone :( On pictures I have seen kovachii makes new shoots while flowering. The last one looks very vigorous for a small kovachii. I can be wrong, hope you can tell me I am...

    kovachii challenge

    After I've bought a RO water filter I had the confidence to try Phragmipedium kovachii. Bought two seedlings four months ago. They were in Sphagnum an I knew they should to be repotted. I used fine bark, small clay pellets, perlite and a little bit crushed oyster shells. Placed them in a...
