    Lycaste Shonan Beat v. Alba

    Something about Lycaste always makes me smile. This is a great plant Tom! And not a mark on the flowers either! Tyler

    Water quality

    Something that is forgotten about that I dont think anyone has mentioned is Chlorine and Chloramine. If you use municipal water, it is required by law to a sterilant for microbes injected into the water. 99.9% of the time it is either Chlorine or Chloramine. Both chemicals are strong enough to...

    Lepanthes calodictyon

    Hey Tom. I’m growing around 20 species at the moment. Here are some pics, not high quality since I’m not a good photographer and I always have the iPhone in my pocket. Edited: I could not label the pics, sorry. I’m an analog dude in a digital world.

    Lepanthes calodictyon

    I work twice a month in the Bay Area California, usually for 2-3 days and stay at my in-laws. Its kinda nice to stay there rather than my former warehouse on a cot and a hose for a shower. Lol Tyler

    Lepanthes calodictyon

    Here is the award photo and description. Sorry would have done this last night but was kind of fried after driving 3.5 hours to get to work. “Twenty-nine flowers and fourteen buds sequentially blooming on twenty-two round, reticulated leaves well-displayed on a 10-cm by 10-cm plant on a 17-cm...

    Lepanthes calodictyon

    I love Lepanthes! When Lep calodictyon ‘Dana Lynn’ was awarded her CCE last year, I was in shock. She was just at the show as a last minute addition to my friend’s display. When she was awarded, nearly every leaf had a flower. Those that were not in flower had a bud. The timing was truly...

    Gordon, rock wool cubes

    I have switched all Phrags to a near 50/50 croutons/perlite. Very happy with the results. Do make sure that you not only presoak, but also pour off the water and lightly squeeze out the water. Raw, they are 8+ pH. For me usually two rinses does the trick but my tap is super soft.

    Phragmipedium besseae var dalessandroi

    I think you might have them reversed. Phrag besseae tends to have more “stoloniferous” growth IME.

    Phragmipedium klotzschianum

    I asked about sourcing some plants a almost a year ago and finally scored plants back in June. Here is the first one to bloom. Not a beauty but I’ll give it another chance. Lol

    Phragmipedium besseae var dalessandroi

    Yes they do offer it for sale. Cant confirm the purity of them though. Chuck Acker has flasks available. Here is one from a flask I got from him a couple years ago.
