    Phragmipedium kovachii nutrient deficiency?

    I have had this quite a few times with different Phrags, including kovachii seedlings. I've never had any fatalities from it. J. P. Faust told me this: "At first I thought it was a lack of Nitrogen and put a little bit more fertilizer, it was wrong and worst… Than I look at the pH and it was...

    Peruflora's Cirila Alca "Peggy" AM/AOS

    You can store the pollen in the fridge for quite a while, by the way. I leave it on the toothpick, wrap it in plastic wrap, then tinfoil. It's been good for several months post flowering.

    Nice one! I hope your cross takes. I made the same cross a few years ago with PCA from Glen Decker and it was very fertile. None of the seedlings have flowered yet though.

    Phrag. Sunset Magic 'Littlefrog Cherry Surprise'

    That's gorgeous!! I hope it's fertile. Maybe you have a lot of 3N plants. I have at least an 80% success rate with pollinating Phrags but I try hard to avoid buying 3N plants.

    Phragmipedium Yelva Myhre

    I bought one of those from them as well, but it's got a ways to go before it flowers. I bought a few from Ecuagenera as well.

    Phrag Eumelia Arias

    The colour is pretty close. It might be shifted a bit towards the blue, but the intensity is very close. There is an LED light on the next plant stand that could account for the blue shift. There is a bit backlighting. I took this with my iphone. I'm pretty happy with the photo. The colour is...

    It's pretty nice! We should all have such problems. (Too many nice plants) What's the source of that one?

    Phrag Darlene Thompson

    That's a beauty! It's quite different than the others I've seen. I love the intense colour and sheen. The shape is quite plaeasing also. What's the NS?

    Phrag. besseae

    How long have you had it? I have some 25 year old plants but they all have a yellow base colour, so they're shades of orange.
