    Paph. braemii photos needed

    :) I'lll keep you in mind... Thanks! Maybe as I have fewer orchids to take care of, I'll have more time to chat.:D

    Paph. braemii photos needed

    Hi Angela! I'm fine. Trying to downsize a little -- I have nearly 1000 orchids, nearly half of them slippers. That is too many for me to take care of properly, and they are so crowded that I think they can't get the light and air they need to grow well. So about 70 big plants just left, and I...

    Paph. braemii photos needed

    Professor Guido Braem asked me if I knew anyone who has a Paph. braemii and could send him photos of both sides of its leaves. I don't have one, but I thought if anyone does, that person would be on Slippertalk. If you do and are willing to take some fairly close-up photos for Guido, please...

    Do you know if this "house plant" rule shared by the US? I've not heard of it.

    New Phrag species - Phragmipedium cabrejosii

    Very nice drawing. Is it yours? Do you know anything about this Phrag's habitat? Is it similar to caricinum's? Thanks!

    Paph. charlesworthii, album 'Wacousta'

    He asked me if I wanted seedlings. I didn't. The cross from Sam was ‘Jumbo’ x ‘Half-n-Half’. The year after I got mine awarded, Sam had one awarded that, in my opinion, was even better -- the whole dorsal was pure white.

    Paph. charlesworthii, album 'Wacousta'

    So, I just looked at the photos in this thread. Is that what Photobucket is doing now? Blurring the image unless you pay them their outragous fee?

    Paph. charlesworthii, album 'Wacousta'

    An old post, indeed! :) I gave that plant away a long time ago, to Thanh Nguyen (Springwater Orchids) to use for breeding. I don't know if he still has it.

    Any particular variety of moss...

    I've kinda been keeping track of what's been going on here, but not very actively. I may have ordered from your TN place some time ago. The moss was good, but had lots of evergreen tree debris in it. If you want just top dressing, just about any moss should do. As I said, personally I prefer...

    Any particular variety of moss...

    I purchase my tree moss from mossunlimited.net. They sell it either wet or dry, and carry several kinds of mosses. Shipping isn't cheap as it comes from Washington state. But our society has been using it for years for our displays, and I use it for my baskets and top-dressing.

    RIP Stephen Hawking

    Nice of you to call me a philosopher, Berthold. According to my dictionary, a philosopher is a thinker, and (among other things) a wise (person). We can use more of that here. Said without sarcasm.

    RIP Stephen Hawking

    Dr. Guido J. Braem book on Phragmipedium.

    Here is what Jerry Fischer has to say about this book: https://www.orchidweb.com/supplies/books/the-genus-phragmipedium-by-guido-j-braem And in my opinion, the in-situ photos are very informative regarding their cultural needs.

    Paph Lady roth x anitum

    I haven't been on this forum for awhile. Sometimes life gets in the way. But I have found this forum to be a serious place for information, and must say, I am a better grower for all I've learned here.
