I received several Cyp fasciolatum last fall. They are growing very nicely this spring. This promises to be a good species in the Northeast. Here is the last - and best - flower among them this year.

Yes, I can't wait to see these growing wild along the road!
They're pretty short; you may not be able to see them with the big pubescens towering over them! :rollhappy:

LOL! I know where there are scallop beds and wild orchids growing in the Bronx but I don't think the Cyps, even the short ones, would last long in NYC.

Gorgeous!

So when are you going to get a Cyp. farreri, eh?
Phytesia is working on those for me but their farreri seedlings are not doing well. Presumably Paul Christian is coming up with some segawii this fall.

Hi, I rec'd the [1st year] Cyp seedlings and I'm not sure of the media and depth to plant them in. For the reginae I plan to use peat moss, man-made and natural soil mix, and if I can find small gravel. If gravel is not available then primeagra. Is that suitable for the Favillianum? Also since they're small should I plant shady or sunny? I will check the e-page you prev provided also. Thanx.

After checking some web-info I've decided to modify the mix: Sand, perlite, little peat moss, little sphagnum, small gravel, natural and manmade soil.

Hi, Eric,

Great! It is good to keep the peat fairly minimal unless you have really dry conditions.
