    found this little guy. what now?

    Release into a friendly environment as soon as he can breathe air! Not sure there are enough bugs to feed a tiny tree frog. My sis fed her tadpole small amounts of fish food. If this is a “tropical” tree frog, it should probably be given to someone capable of building it a terrarium and willing...

    Phrag Demetria

    I use fans 24/7 all year round to encourage air movement. The misters will be tried next year. Certainly don’t want a repeat of last summer LOL

    kovachii / diatomite

    I find my Kovachii hybrids HATE heat! After a beastly summer of incredibly high 90’s for the majority of the summer, I have nothing but roots left of my Fritz Schomberg! Sniff! The rest at delighted fall is here

    Ecuagenera

    Well, I was told by one of the growers that my shipment was going to be shipped via air from Ecuador to their site in Florida. There it is xferred to UPS and I receive a tracking #. Everything occurred exactly as he said and things were right on schedule. I have heard other folks claim to have...

    Ecuagenera

    Yes, I got nice sized plants and the roots survived the shipping well! They also notified me that one plant I ordered was not vigorous enough to make the trip! I was asked to order a substitute! Many places would have just shipped it...Yes, will definitely order again! I am wanting Phrag...

    Ecuagenera

    I have 8 (possibly 7) from Ecuagenera and they were all shipped from Equador to the Florida site...then rushed to me. I assume all Online purchases are shipped from Equador. Received them in April (all are primary hybrids of Phrag Kovachii and Phrag Besseae!) Most of them survived a horrible...

    Phrag Demetria

    Well, our 3 month heat spell was almost rain free! I didn’t leave them outside! I am including misting to modify temps next year! We don’t normally have 3 month’s of 90+ temps or summer long drought! My collection is all Kovachii and Besseae primary hybrids! The Phrag that breezes through...

    Phrag Demetria

    I am seriously considering trying a small ac unit just for them.

    Phrag Demetria

    Hmmm. I am tackling Phrags for the first time as well, was using totally pure water and have special slotted pots to help air get in, fans for circulation, special custom mixed Phrag media etc. I got them last April then we had a wretched HOT summer with temps in the upper 90’s. Suddenly all but...

    Phragmipedium Ecuagenera Dream

    Well, we can’t leave you unsatisfied there! The lighting was wonky in that spot! Here are a couple more pictures that are in better daylight lighting! The first is a collage and the second I love due to it showing the incredible colour of her eyes. They are a very dark denim colour with a bright...

    Phragmipedium Ecuagenera Dream

    And here is my Ecuagenera Dream! Potted in Deluxe Phragmipedium medium from rePotme.com, special slotted pots that allow air movement and a specially designed bottom that prevents roots getting soggy by being under water, yet allows wicking to keep the media moist. I mix 1/4 tap water (high in...

    Phragmipedium Ecuagenera Dream

    Yes, she meows only if she is really looking for me or is agitated. Her personal language just between us is huge. Chirps,trills, the whispered meow. She rubs noses with me (absolutely necessary before falling asleep at night) Yes, she sleeps in my arms. During the day she owns the lap. The...

    Phragmipedium Ecuagenera Dream

    Yes, that is my “shadow” since she was 7 weeks of age. I named her Pye and love her absolutely! She is a lilac point. Her mother was a blue point. She was 1 of 3 kittens that didn’t look blue like their mother. Took some researching to discover that both parents had to be blue with chocolate...

    Finally... Phragmipedium humboltii in spike!

    I know of a person that bought a Kovachii hybrid and when it bloomed, turned out to be Kovachii! He was over the moon happy!
