    Phrag Acker's Berry

    This is a new acquisition as of last week. I thought I'd share it with you all. I know the photo quality and the flower aren't that great. At least it gives you an idea of what it looks like.

    Phrag. besseae Hybrids vs. kovachii Hybrids

    I have heard recently that you should grow Phrag besseae hybrids more like you would besseae and grow kovachii hybrids like you would kovachii. So what happens in the case of Phrag Fritz Schomburg should it be grown slightly acidic or alkaline? Or does it really not care?

    Greetings All!

    Thought I'd say hi to everyone and tell a bit about myself. I started as attempting to grow orchids in 1976. Yes, I'm no youngster.... I was ten then. It wasn't until 1981 that they started surviving for me. I am a hobbiest up with small collection of approximately 130 orchids. They are mostly...
