Hi, thought I should introduce myself now that I've started posting. I live in the Pacific Northwest USA and have a good-sized orchid collection, but I'm really narrowing in on slippers. This portion of my collection is still fairly small, around 25 species and hybrids - mostly Paphs, but I'm also trying out Phrags. I'm excited to be blooming my first species Paphs this fall, feeling accomplished about that! I also have a few hardy orchids, including Cypripedium japonicum, which I think I might have killed despite extensive research and care, but we'll see what happens this spring. I am excited to dive in and learn more!
