    sangii on a stalk!!

    Are there any explanations as to why this is growing on a stalk? I have had it as a small plant for 4years. During this time growth was ( and still is ) very slow. It is now quite a large plant with a single growth which is in the correct position in the substrate. Never seen this before ----...

    Paph. philipinense x pinocchio.

    First paph I have flowered in three years. This is a very compact plant that last bloomed almost 4 years ago,so compact I can't count the growths. It has three spikes and I think only bloomed because I gave it extra light with 2 Gro-Lux tubes and 2 T5's Ed

    What kovachii hybrid?

    Bought this some months ago when the plant was just marked Phrag. Being a nutter for most phrags I couldn't refuse it.

    Phragmipedium grande

    This is,I think, a very good first flowering . The top bloom just opened yesteday so the petals should get considerably longer over the next few days. Hope you like Ed PS.. I snapped the " danglers " of the right hand one when i caught it in the car boot ooops!!!

    Continual irrigation so far.

    The tap water in my region is very soft and slightly acidic. Since starting the continuous watering ( 24hr ) some 6 weeks ago today I had a look at some of the roots of phragmipediums and paphiopedilums. The compost of which some are in a bark mix and others in NZ sphagnum and is absolutely...

    Phrag. Paul Eugene Conroy

    Although this was bought some two years ago as Paul Eugene Conroy it looks like a small version of Grande. The only difference I can spot is that in this phrag the petals are green whereas in Grande they are more yellow. Am I right or is this plant not what I thought it was??? Ed
