    Cypripedium himalaicum

    I don't believe the plants offered on ebay are true C. himalaicum. They are all offerd by chinese dealers, but are not true C. himalaicum. I know of no one in Europe that grows C. himalaicum and I believe it is not in cultivation there. I agree that just about all the imported plants are...

    Cyp arietinum

    We all know that C. arietinum is probably the most difficult one to grow. Is there anyone that has attempted to grow it and how successful have you been? I am interested to get a short history on success/failure on that plant.
