    Phragmipedium longifolium

    This has been in constant bloom since March, with still one last bud to follow. Here is the thread with the first flower. The new growth is monstrous, as I was warned! There is a secondary new growth starting as well. Hopefully I'll...

    From the photos I've seen your collection in the living room is very impressive! How do you deal with humidity though? I've struggled, particularly in winter with high humidity leading to mould.

    Phrag with stunted multiple growths

    Phragmipedium longifolium

    First time flowering for me. Not kidding about the long leaves, I did not realise how big they get, and the new growth will be even bigger. IMG_4135 by tom_499, on Flickr IMG_4136 by tom_499, on Flickr
