    slugs in my greenhouse

    Anybody got a remedy for slugs that can be used on a wet concrete floor? I can't find where on earth the slugs are getting in, but I found a huge one on one of my Phrag. pots. I had a panic attack and had to pull the slimy thing off by hand.

    Wanted looking for walkeriana vendors

    suggestions on where to buy this little beauty. Color is secondary. Health and larger size, 6" pot is most important. I'd like to grow one or two mounted on cork. Got ideas?

    Phrag. La Vingtaine ( MD Clemens 'Sandy Gem' x kovachii 'Terminator')

    Anyone have this particular plant? I bought two divisions and they're growing well , but no bloom so far. Perhaps my culture is at fault. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Hey Duck Slipper!!!!!

    I just found my Caudatum is in low bud! Wonder of wonders. I didn't think the &^%^$ thing would ever bloom. So glad you mentioned that your plant is in bud or I'd never have seen mine. Thank you, Sir.

    I've got to make some room in my gh and I have several Phrag. seedlings to give away to a needy Phrag. addict. I'll make a list if anybody is interested.

    Phrag. Jason Fischer 3N

    Dear Ray and Eric, my Phrag just opened fully and is wonderful...dark crimson, perfect petals and pushing another bloom quickly after a loooong wait for the first bloom to develop to see what it might look like.

    Speculations on Phrag. conditions

    Greenhouse whammy

    Did anyone else get the snow, wind and general miserable weather last night??? KY surely did! A generator is the only thing that saved my greenhouse from total devastation...maybe.

    About Phrag. old bloomed growth...

    I haven't seen any opinions on this subject and I'd like some ideas. I usually cut back a section of Phrags that has bloomed and turning yellowish. Perhaps this is a bad habit. I'd like other opinions please.

    Phrag. manzurii and manzurii aldea

    Will somebody please tell me what the best growing conditions for these two plants might be? I acquired them as freebies and the plants aren't doing well...not dying, just not particularly growing well.
