    Books on Slippers

    I own "Slipper Orchids, Paphiopedilum All Secrets Revealed" Picked it up on an online bookstore for $20 it was so bad that I left a pretty rotten review even though it was so greatly discounted It is, in my opinion, the singularly worst orchid book that I have. And I have 5 bookcases of...

    There was an article in the Orchid Digest several years back that confirmed success in mericloning some paphs. If I recall there was limited success and an issue with deformity. Sorry but I don’t remember the author or exact issue.

    Is This Book Any Good??

    I purchased it on a book site that I used to check regularly. It popped up one day as 95% off. I assumed it was a remainder so I purchased one. The day after I purchased the price shot up again and never dropped As for the book's size. It is physically big and has lots of pages...

    Is This Book Any Good??

    I have a copy . If I recall this book is listed at $250 or so a copy. I found it online for $20 plus shipping so I took a chance Even at $20 I would not buy this book again. Terrible print, worse quality paper and zero content compared to the classic Paph books. IMHO Do not waste your money

    Orchid bark in Canada?

    I bought a large bag at Clouds earlier this summer. My plants seem very happy with it. Perhaps if you showed at one of their open houses you could pick up the bark you need

    I ordered from them several times when they were still in Alberta. Since the move to B.C. the shipping to Ontario was more than I was willing to pay In the past they always responded quickly to inquiries. Shipping was fast and the plants always arrived in prime condition I did find some of...
