    Mounting B. cucullata

    I'm going to mount my B. cucullata seedling from Ray but it currently doesn't have new root growth but has new leaves coming. Should I mount it now or wait? If it was larger I'd mount it now but I'm more cautious with seedlings. And should I mount it upside down, right side up or sticking out? I...

    Rootless masdevallia

    Remember this thread? http://www.slippertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27134 Well, I'm still having trouble with it. It is mostly rootless. I've tried it in sphagnum for the longest time. It grows lots of leaves and loses lots of leaves. It grows very, very few roots. I've gotten a healthy...

    Paph. delenatii- a personal favorite

    Here's one of my favorite paphs. Super easy for me, only thing is this clone doesn't hold onto many growths at a time. Side view: It has a ns of 9 cm across and 6 cm tall. Just wondering is this average, large, small?

    De-compoting time for these Paph seedlings???

    I think it's time these little Paph liemianum seedlings each had their own home. What do you guys think? At first I thought I'd wait until late February/early March which would be a year from when I got them, but now I'm thinking I could do it sooner and just wanted to make sure. The cross is...

    Carrying flasks over the border

    Hi all. A recent post reminded me of a question I have. I have an aunt living in Panama. She lives about 20 minutes from 'Dracula Finca'. She also has a few friends with huge shade houses of orchids. I'm going to go down there sometime, hopefully within the next 2 years. I'd love to bring a...

    Shipping plants

    I have a whole bunch of African Violets- Rob's Lilli Pilli, to sell and ship. I think I'll put them on eBay (maybe on here). I really need the space. Any suggestions how to ship? I think I'll do it using USPS Priority Mail. Any places I shouldn't ship to? (AZ, HI, AK, CA?) Do I need any permit...

    I got a box of 3 T. brachiata from someone in Hawaii. I only had to pay for shipping. One of them is very curved at the top. Any ideas how to straighten it without breaking it?

    Paph. Sacajawea's Slipper: Still Searching

    I'm still searching for Paph. Sacajawea's Slippers- seedlings, flask, compot, seeds, plant, pollen, anything. I got notified by someone on OB that Carolina Orchids had it listed on their paph list. I contacted them as soon as I found out and they replied back and said "Not available. Thanks...

    Does Paph. malipoense produce stolons?

    I know armeniacum and micranthum can have long rhizomes between growths, can malipoense? My new malipoense in bud from Orchid Inn just started producing three new growths and they just seem a little different, will they all develope fully or not? There's one on the other side also.
