    one flower this time around. but I still love this species. I guess that I have to put it back with the Cattleyas and Lycastes.. I'll need to rearrange some plants... again! lol

    Super Rubies

    I'll probably do that. It climbs a little and I want to repot it and cover the base and see if it would help the next growth bloom better since it would have it's own root system. We'll see. I was also thinking of crossing it back to popowii. but I'm not sure if I'll have the patience to wait...

    Super Rubies

    (besseae x warszewiczianum black) small flower huuuuge plant. a bit of a disappointment. not sure how a besseae and a popowii can produce such a big plant. not sure either if I'm keeping this one. takes up way too much space.

    (Elizabeth Castle x kovachii) The colour is a bit off on the second picture. It got a little too sunny when I took the picture. Not much to say about this one. Reliable bloomer, medium size plant (for a kovachii hybrid), big flower.

    (kovachii 'Laura' x Cape Sunset) I can't believe that I've been growing this plant for almost a decade now. Still one of my favorite Phragmipedium. :)

    Some plants in bloom in January :)

    The first flower on my Fanaticum is pretty much done, but the color on the staminoid was accurate. Today: I’m also trying to figure out how slippertalk works. :)

    Cahaba Yellow Bird

    Gift from Russell. It took a few years to reach blooming size, like almost 5 years I think. But it’s very pleasant to look at and the flower is relatively big compared to it’s foliage so it’s a plus :) Cahaba Yellow bird is Phrag. Robert Palm x richteri Enjoy :) First or second flower...
