    Bletilla striata in habitat

    Thanks for the great information on this species and all the other videos you have done in the past. Huge fan of your bontany boy channel. Looking forward to the video. Btw, your video of riding your bike into the mountains and going through the gauntlet as you aptly mentioned it gave me...

    Cyp deer damage and recovery

    I have to put a wire cage around my Cyps in the deer haven that is my property.. not pretty but effective. I have yet to loose any to deer. Only from my stupidity and learning to grow them. Side note, I also grow a lot of native plants out in my woods and I push sticks in and around the...

    Cypripedium sabine

    Great to hear some of your Cyps are up! Looking forward to seeing your Pubescens in bloom. I lost one of my Pubescens seedlings thanks to a slug, it wasn’t strong enough to produce a new eye afterward. But all my Kentuckiense are up and the rest of my Pubescens. But I do pot culture right now...

    Very nice! Yeah I plan to share my experience with my seedlings from last year and as they progress this year with the new format. I purchased a few near blooming plants from hill side nursery this spring and looking forward to recieving them in a few weeks. I wasn’t paying attention last...

    I noticed in a few posts that you sell Cyphs, I may have missed it, but do you have a site or list of plants that are available for order with prices? Thanks, Jason

    Over wintering

    I have about 10, 2year seedlings of Pubescens and Kentuckiense that I have potted up and have gone dormant. Pubescens about 4 weeks ago and Kentuckiense just this week with a few outside still green! My question is should I bag and put the entire pot into my beer fridge or should I remove...

    How are your Cyps doing with all this heat and heavy rain?

    Cypripedium seedlings

    At what point does the cypripedium produce it’s next year rhizome? My 3 year old decided he wanted to become a Gardner too! :noangel: And needless to say he damaged some of my seedlings and they are starting die back. Maybe next year?! Others are going strong!

    Cypripedium seedlings

    Thanks for all the help, I ended up modifying the way I originally was going to pot everything up. I actually rec’d my seedlings about 2 1/2 weeks ago, Thank you Spangle Creek! I potted them up and then buried the pots in the ground with about an inch from the soil line then surrounded with...

    Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum comeback 2018

    Gorgeous plant JPMC, in your spare bedroom do you do anything to increase the humidity or have a variance in Day/night temps? Or just whatever the rest of the house is? I have some Pubescens and Kentuckiense coming sometime this next week and I’m planning to keep half indoors and half...

    Cypripedium seedlings

    Would 300-500fc be with just one or two of those LED lights? Would two be way to much?

    Cypripedium seedlings

    Recently found a cheap LED shop light to increase the amount of light my current set up and seedling cyps will get. I found a 42W, 5000k, 4,200 lumen LED shop light for $25. Would this be to much light at 12” above my plants? Or should I have even have 2 sets of shop lights? I can increase...

    Cypripedium seedlings

    I must have been reading the app backwards. You are correct i’m getting about 450fc off a single T8 40w bulb. And 350 with the LED. I’m at about 8 cents a kWh, so I see what your saying. Where is the costs savings with the extra costs of the LED. I’ll just find something cheap at one of the...

    Greetings from South East Missouri

    Thanks everyone, I will definitely keep you posted on the Cyps. I think I’ll split the lot 3 outside 3 insider. Now the question will be where to place them outside.
