    Paph. Jacqueline’s Spring Moon ‘Pacific Heights’ AM/HOS

    HOS is the Honolulu Orchid Society, which for decades has had its own judging system, which is similar, but not identical, to the AOS judging system. This particular clone was awarded on April 10, 2019. At that time, it had two flowers on two 17 cm tall inflorescences and a horizontal natural...

    Phragmipedium Millbrook

    eBay is as good or as bad as the seller. Eric, I agree that it is often better to buy orchids directly from the grower, particularly if a question arises or a problem develops. By the time you know you have a problem, an eBay seller is, in essence, long gone. Case in point - I bought a...

    Phrag. Acker’s Northstar

    Hi Eric, Phrag. Acker’s Northstar is Inca Rose (besseae x Pink Panther) x Hanne Popow (besseae x schlimi), which of course makes it 50% besseae. I’ve been blooming out a bunch of these little pink crosses that Chuck Acker put out a couple years ago. The color contrast in the fenestrations of...

    This is why we cannot have nice things...

    Hi Max, I admire your discipline, but lack the fortitude. Actually what I lack is a whole lot of mature plants. Most of mine are first or second bloomers, which need to be seen to be culled. I have been told that you need to bloom a phrag at least 3 times to assess its best qualities. Not true?

    That’s a sweet one. I have a friend here in HNL, Dale M., who grows a lot of Nepenthes. I’ve tried a handful, but have not had much success, aka ☠.

    Phrag. Sherman's March 'Fox Valley' AM/AOS

    That’s a keeper, Tom! I am amazed at how some of the besseae hybrids produce those rich red colors. Congrats.
