    My absolute favourite! It will always mean acocentrum to me though I know that “name no longer exists

    Cattleya purpurata

    Ah but I wish I lived in a climate where most of my orchids could live outside, mounted on trees or inside a screened pool area! If wishes were fishes! I could do cold loving Cyps like the state flower of MN would grow here easily in a shaded Easterly location. (I am in central MN.) Now if I...

    The right care for Phragmipedium kovachii?

    I have had Kovachii primary hybrids that have melted in MN summer heat. I lack air conditioning so it is always a bit of an issue!

    Rats come in out of the rain

    About Rats, they actually are omnivores. Have been known to kill Chickens around here…just an FYI, not to mention the damage to buildings etc! I had a rat infestation, took 2 years to live trap and kill them all, and $3,000 to repair the damage to my Breezeway (where they chose to nest and live)...

    Phrag. kovachii ‘Laura’

    Being a window sill grower with only fans to cool things, I have a difficult time keeping my Phrags cool enough in the summer! I always regret that I haven’t the courage to try Kovachii! I lost 2 Kovachii primary hybrids due to heat so far!

    Kovachii ‘Laura’ x ‘Ana’

    Beautiful! I fear Kovachii would chose to die in our summer heat waves! No air conditioning! I have lost 2 Kovachii primary hybrids…one each year over the last 2 years! The rest seem determined to ignore the heat! It helps that they are in my kitchen South window. It is the coolest room in my...

    Hi from Nottinghamshire UK

    Welcome! I currently have no Paphs, struggling to understand my Phrags of which I have 8. Two of them are species and 6 of them are primary hybrids of Bessiea and Kovachii. I also have 3 Phals. I had 3 mini’s given to me by my son but they were in sphagnum moss which promptly rotted and took the...
