    Cyp. Philipp

    Very nice and it looks well established. I have read here and in other places to fertilize sparingly so I have added a small scattering of 3 to 4 month osmocoate when the plants broke surface. As name suggests these release a small amount of food over 3 to 4 months. I have also foliar fed with a...

    Very happy with this plant and I was surprised to see two flowers on one stem. All of the info I have read says one per stem. I wondered if it happened with plants that are cultivated due to higher food levels but not sure on this. Another plant had two buds on one stem but it had withered away...

    Formosanum 2016

    First cypripedium bud

    Hi Dave, I know you are right about growing mainly hybrids and have already lost a few of the species, However, I don't think I can resist them all together yet, a few more hits to the wallet and I will wise up a bit I am sure. Sorry to here about the losses and I am glad your getting back...
