Love it. All of it. Really well done. I have acaule in the ground, but it also grows plentifully in surrounding forests.

I failed with the parviflorum last year. Need to try again different site.

cheers

I grow in a 50% Turface/50% Coconut Coir mix.
I use only rain water with 3oz apple cider vinegar and 1/8 tsp DynaGrow Orchid Fertilizer per gallon as needed.
50% shade.
In the late fall after they go dormant I let them half dry and put each pot in a ziplock bag and store them in my shed... the temps are between 30- 45°F all winter. I remove them in the spring as soon as I see them breaking through the medium.

Thanks for the nice comments. I selfed this acaule today. I made a little video of it but can’t figure out how to upload the file. When I figure it out I’ll attach it in my next post

Wow. I am very impressed with your grow space and how neat, orderly and clean everything is. I would love to see more.
Thanks for sharing your growing tips.

Does anyone know where I could get the pod from this selfing flasked? I’m having no luck with my usual Cypripedium guys...

Hi, Phred,

somehow I missed your question about flashing Cyp acaule. I would be happy to do it, l have flasked several acaule pods.
Best,
