    Schnauzer on the Hunt!

    Thought I'd update the Cruise saga. Here's a photo of his three daughters taken late last year. It was his first stud assignment, so very proud.

    Phrag. d'alessandroi 'DD #2'

    Not sure how you'd get there with COVID restrictions, but I'd advise going as soon as it's possible; the hikes aren't too strenuous for anyone in decent shape. The first trip I took about ten years ago was guided by Ecuagenera and it was excellent, especially since I was interested in seeing...

    Beautiful display of these colorful classics.

    Phrag. d'alessandroi 'DD #2'

    Standard 10 x 20 x 2 1/2 inches deep propagation trays with slotted bottoms for drainage. (See photo). I think most garden centers carry them, especially in the spring, or eBay. Haven't heard from Dennis in a long time; I assume he's still down in Ecuador?

    Phrag. caudanum

    Phrag. caudatum is not the easiest Phrag. species to grow well for us either. Not sure why, but It's the reason we grow Phrag. humboldtii instead; they seem to be easier.

    Phrag. d'alessandroi 'DD #2'

    One of three original clones from Dennis D'alessandro back in the day. Another good example of tray culture for this species.

    Phrag. besseae fma flavum 'Green Gold' HCC/AOS

    Even the flavum forms grow to be large plants with tray culture. A great way to grow them if you have the room.

    Phrag. andreettae ('Fox Valley x self)

    Dar/ Brooks - We still have near blooming size Phrag. andreettae seedlings offered in our online store. They should flower in 6-12 months. (See photo)

    Phragmipedium dalessandroi

    Not unusual to have a lighter colored pouch than petals for this species. (See photo of the Phrag. d'alessandroi 'Fox Valley' CHM-AOS clone attached.) Sometimes cooler temps during bud development will darker the pouch color.

    Paph Shun Fa Golden

    Great color!

    Phrag. andreettae ('Fox Valley x self)

    Nice flush of pink on this one. We've seen four or five now, and this clone has the most color.

    Phrag. kovachii 'Littlefrog Magenta Princess'

    Nice. What's the leaf span?

    Iiiiiiii’m dreaming of a whiiiiiiiite (longifolium alba) Christmas!

    It's been rumoured for a long time. If it was true, you would thing there would have been seedlings available by now.

    Website Update

    Here's the link. Glad to hear your plants are doing well! The Paph. armeniacum seedlings have been very popular.

    Anyone else experiencing problems here?

    No problem here Ray. Maybe with your ISP or server?
