    Magic Lantern

    Salvia 'Hot Lips' is a striking example of a plant for which the difference between day and night temperatures seems to play an important role in colouring of the flower. When nights are warm Hot Lips develops flowers that are all fully red. When nights get cooler the newly formed buds...

    Paphiopedilum concolor

    I got this beautifull Paph in 2015 and it has 'delivered' ever since two nice flowers either in summer or during early autumn

    Phragmipedium Sedenii

    One of the easiest Phragmipediums to flower. And it grows almost like weed... It's a hybrid between longifolium and schlimii.

    Phragmipedium Sorcerer's Apprentice

    This Phragmipedium is a hybrid between longifolium and sargentianum. It's growing a bit out of control though and has become by far the biggest phragmipedium in my (small) collection. Two years ago, it had 4 blooming stems, last year none. This year it is starting with one. I probably should...

    Cypripedium formosanum

    Did not know Diatomaceous Earthe was being used to keep snails and slugs away. I'll keep it mind. Fortunately, we have'nt had too many of them this year. Possibly because of the unseasonable cold weather during most of the spring out here.

    Paphiopedilum dayanum

    A very steady and reliable bloomer placed in shady spot in my veranda (which is intermediate to warm)

    Phragmipedium Olaf Gruss

    This is a primary hybrid between bessae en pearcei. It has relatively small but very pretty flowers.

    Cypripedium formosanum

    Two years ago, snails devoured the fresh shoots. Last year, they were destroyed by late frost. This year I got at least one flower. Hopefully more next year....

    Phragmipedium 'Eric Young'

    This has been my most reliable bloomer ever since I acquired it in 2010. It usually flowers for at least 3 months a year and had at times 4 simultaneous stems in flower. Unfortunately it becomes excessively big over time and I therefore had to divide it a couple of times already. The is...

    Phragmipedium 'Memoria Dick Clements'

    Looking at the pictures on the web I can't tell the difference between Memoria Dick Clements (which is what it showed on the tag when I purchased the plant) and Rosalie Dixler but maybe Eric can help me with that?

    Phragmipedium 'Memoria Dick Clements'

    Sorry Rick for my belated reply. I grow it in glass fibre, glass wool (I'm not too sure how to translate this from dutch to English). It has bloomed every year since I bought in 2014. I have split the plant a couple of times over the years and given away the split-offs. Am not sure how well...

    Paphiopedilum vietnamiense

    Thanks for letting me know. I feel kind of relieved to learn it's not an orchid of which I read in the meantime it's supposedly critically endangered in the wild.

    Paphiopedilum 'Evelyne Schmidt'

    This Paph is a hybrid between hennesianum and fowliei. I bought the slipper at the vendor who registered the cross at RHS in 2010. I believe it's named after his wife...

    Paphiopedilum vietnamiense

    Unfortunately the flowers of this Paph last only for about 7 days so I have to enjoy them whilst they are there....

    Phragmipedium 'Memoria Dick Clements'

    This beauty is currently flowering at home. It's a hybrid between sargentianum and bessae
