    Recommendations for Zone 6b?

    Hi! I moved recently and I’m looking for recommendations on what might grow and bloom well for me. I’m in central New Jersey (zone 6b) in an apartment with south-facing windows that get good light, plus I have a grow light. My temps are always between 68F and 75F, with little variation between...

    Peruflora flask list

    Does anyone have the current Peruflora flask list? I emailed them but have not gotten a response, so I just figured I would ask around instead.

    Phrag Apollo or other kovachii backross

    I'm looking for Phrag Apollo (Phrag (kovachii x besseae) x kovachii) or a similar kovachii backcross, such as with dalessandroi, schlimii or fischeri. I know Orchids Ltd. had Phrag Apollo about a year and a half ago, but at a higher price than I could pay. I currently have emails out to...

    Rock mount for lithophytic Phrags?

    I guess I just like to think about different ways to grow things. Does anyone have information or opinions on growing lithophytic Phrags on rock mounts? I'm thinking of mounting a lithophytic phrag (like schlimii) on a piece of granite. The orchid would be mounted in moss on the rock. The...

    I was surprised to find nothing on this forum about biopods! Has anyone used them for Phrags? I'm thinking of trying one out, maybe even for a kovachii. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    eBay vendors: lilywantian & funoption

    Does anyone know lilywantian on eBay? They ship from China apparently... but they have good deals... Also funoption, they ship from Thailand. Wouldn't you need permits for these? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Paph. violascens

    Does anyone have a division of Paphiopedilum violascens? Or one that they would be willing to part with? Willing to pay up to $50 depending on quality/vigor. I'm currently watching the Orchid Zone eBay listing, but the previous violascens they have sold have been labeled as breeding/award...

    What's the history of this, or, why is it so popular? What should I look for in these hybrids? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Phrag. Cardinale 2N

    I'm looking for a known Cardinale (Sedenii x schlimii), so maybe a remake, hopefully relatively flat (not as much twisty-petaled longifolium influence, since Cardinale can be variable), for about $50 or less. Any size. Thanks.

    Lumping and Labelling for Hybrids?

    If someone were to make a hybrid with, say, Phrag. Hybrid A and Phrag. dalessandroi to make Phrag. Hybrid X, and then later someone makes a hybrid with Phrag. Hybrid A and Phrag. besseae to make Phrag. hybrid Y, and then besseae and dalessandroi are permanently lumped to besseae, then would the...

    Phragmipedium Ruby Throat

    Anyone know where I can get this hybrid? Orchids Limited had it at one point apparently, but I haven't heard back from them on it, so I'm wondering if it's possible to find it elsewhere. Or, does anyone have a division they would like to sell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fertilizer for kovachii & others

    I have liquid Dyna-Go Grow (7-9-5), and would like to use it for my kovachii. Does that sound ok to use? The suggested dose is 1/4 to 1/2 tsp every time you water. More info. I also have Jack's Classic All Purpose 20-20-20, water soluble, recommended dose:1/2 tsp per gallon per week or 1/4...

    Rich orange Phrag

    I'm looking for a rich/full orange Phrag, not something pale. Something like Phrag. Cathleen O'Rourke 'Peachie'. Any ideas on who might have one? Thanks!

    Is there a way to contact EYOF? I really like the andreettae hybrids they've produced, and am interested in purchasing one. Especially hybrids with andreettae and kovachii or besseae. Thanks.

    Disa fertilizer

    Hi, all. I have a Disa tripetaloides and am wondering about fertilizers. Everyone always says that you need to use extremely low levels, but I would appreciate a more specific measurement. I have Dyna-Gro Liquid Grow Plant Food 7-9-5, which I believe is supposed to be good for Phrags. On the...
