    I got this plant from Wenqing Perner in March 2017. It developed into a nice clump with a dozen of flowers/buds this year!

    I am not really an experienced Cyp grower, but I grow the flavum in a larger clay pot in a mixture of Orchiata bark, pumice, perlite and some cactus soil, outside all year round.

    Wow Jean! How big was it when you got it? Unless I'm counting wrong, you've got at least 12 growths there and half as many flowers and buds. That is a BIG, superbly grown plant, not just a "nice one". Awesome is more like it. You rarely see them that large in the wild or in cultivation.

    Jean, that is just outstanding. You don't see wild plants any larger than that, and fewer in cultivation. Hat's off to you.

    That is a stunning plant and very well grown. I’ve not had much luck with cyps from the Perners, mainly the tibeticums. They linger and die,
    So well done with yours!

    Hi Jean,

    I first saw the pics of your fabulous plant late... but have to join the chorus with praise: what a wellgrown specimen plant - and such an array of flowers!

    And you are way too modest: this doesn't in any way look like the work of a dabbler with a lucky hand, it reeks of expert growing!

    Kind regards, Jens
