Spring weather is finally here in New Jersey and I have unpacked my ‘bagged’ perennial collection from their winter storage in the shed.
My potted Cypripedium acaule are starting to emerge and so far one looks like it will be blooming.

Congratulations, especially on the acaule. Not an easy Cyp.
to keep alive and bloom is a bonus. Yay you!

I bought a bunch of nivale but they all turned it to be pusillum. I already had 50 pusillum. It’s on my “Plants to Acquire” list again.

Yes... 2019 Paph Forum. I grow in large terra-cotta pots. 50% Turface/50% Espoma Soil Mender. The biggest problem I have here in South Jersey is the heat and humidity in the middle of the summer. Last year was s bad one. They would probably do better in the ground but I’m not where I can do that at the moment.

I’m temporarily living in NJ. When done here they will all go in the ground... when I figure out where we’re moving to.
