Does anyone have information on a source for compots of flavum phrags? I was thinking of trying something like a St Ouen with a flavum background.
I already have a compot from Orchid babies of Eric young (besseae flavum x longifolium gracile 'Birchwood' AM/AOS). Still a ways to go before they will be blooming sized.
I would also be interested in divisions or seedlings, from private collections, or from commercial sources, if they are not too expensive.
Thanks !

Eric

Another interesting cross in the works is P. longifolium v. album x P. besseae v. flavum which Tom Kalina has made. Hopefully he will be selling flasks soon.

Orchids Limited also has made St. Ouen with a P. besseae v. flavum and a number of them have bloomed out solid yellow. They have them on their website.

The St. Ouen is nice but I had trouble growing both the ones I had. Can anyone else comment on that? It could very well have been me, of course.

I think there is also a Beauport flavum out there...

It's you.








:D Sorry, I couldn't resist.
Woodstream has some flasks w/ besseae flavum parents. Woodstream, Al's in Va, Orchidbabies, Fox Valley and Orchids Ltd. are your best choices for seedlings and mature plants.

I don't know it's growing into an expensive trip. $99 Amtrak plus the 30 mile ride [taxi/!] each way. Florida was the same price!
