Discussion in 'Cypripedium' started by Berthold, Mar 27, 2011.
Seedlings from that mother plant sown in late summer 2010 from green seed capsules
after 9 weeks
3.5 month after vernalisation in the fridge on Jan 24. 2011
First season out of flask finished
Congrats on that Berthold.
A good propagation rate by cloning of the seedlings ist also possible, like Timm Willem shows.
Meanwhile it seems there are no longer strange limitations for distribution of Cypripedium montanum over european gardens
Begin of second season after deflasking. So, propagation of this species is not too complicated
Hope mine will show up as well.
Did you have them inside or outside
I have some inside in pots and some in the garden. The adult plant in the garden is coming again, the babies I don't see yet.
Had this year the first time seedling after flask out too.
Not this ones but others, so I hope they will show up again.
Hopeing for yours they have made it this would be one step foward.
A new plant from Canada, 5 years in my the garden now.
Last spring was to dry for flowering, but this year all is doing well again
I had one for several years and then the crown was eaten by voles. I had bought it from a nursery near Montreal and it grew very well here in the Quebec City area.
Wow, very nice!
Lovely species, and certainly not the easiest in the garden, so contrats to all successfully growing this one.
Very well done. I too am working with this species in Oregon. My ultimate goal is to reestablish some lost populations in western Oregon. Based on historical records they were fairly widespread though probably not common. Now they are extremely rare in my part of the state.
Could you share what media you are using for your seed germination and seedling culture? Any tips on transferring from sterile culture to the real world would also be greatly appreciated.
Again, well done. Your results are to be applauded which I now do.
Outstanding effort to grow and bloom this
gorgeous species. Congratulations!
Nice, thanks for sharing.
