    Phragmipedium Hybrid watercolour painting

    'Phragmipedium Hybrid.' This is a watercolour painting of my orchid. I do not know its official hybrid name, but I think it is possibly Phragmipedium Grande, or Phrag. Grande x longifolium.

    Phragmipedium long-petalled hybrid, please help identify

    I acquired this Phragmipedium hybrid yesterday, it had no name on the label. I was really attracted to it due to the pink hue with the green, that the veins are not too prominent on the pouch and the plant vigour. Personally I think it most resembles 'Leslie Garay' (caudatum x longifolium), or...

    Phrag. Eumelia Arias setting bud?

    Is my Eumelia Arias putting out a bud? The growth emerging from the crown has some light striations on its sides and when viewed from the top, doesn’t look “creased” like new leaves do.

    Phrag. x roethianum? Phrag. Rio Mira?

    How does one differentiate between these two hybrids of P. hirtzii and P. longifolium? P. x roethianum occurs naturally, so does that mean only plants descending from wild populations can be called P. x roethianum? And plants with a P. hirtzii parent and a P. longifolium parent bred in captivity...

    Phrag grown hydroponically in aquaria

    Since some Phrag species can be grown with wet feet, is it possible to take this a step further and grow them near the surface of an aquarium? I have a couple divisions from my Incan Treasure that fell off while I was trimming its roots that I was considering sticking into this breeder box and...

    Rust-colored spot on Phrag. Besseae leaf

    Today I noticed this rust-colored spot on one of my Phrag. besseae’s leaves. Two weeks ago I noticed smaller spots around the base of the plant, which I suspected to be some sort of rot due to being potted up too high with sphagnum moss. I took the moss out and put dragon’s blood on the...

    Phrag Acker's Beauty

    This is a first bloom seedling of Phrag. Acker's Beauty (Lindleyanum X Kovachii). I got this as a large seedling last year from Woodstream Orchids. I'll have to update the photo as it's gotten larger and the colors have evened out a little. It's quite a large bloom and i find the...
