Hi Patrix!
Oooh, I love to help people shop! :)

I think Ruby Slippers is available from Marilyn LeDoux at Windy Hill Gardens. She doesn't have it listed in her new catalog but I once bought one from her so she may have them, worth asking. Another nice red Phrag with longer petals, is Phrag. Maria Glanz which is besseae x wallisii. Probably my favorite longer petaled red Phrag.

Noirmont is nice, and there are some really great ones out there, but they don't have very long wiggly petals. Phrag. Bouley Bay also has nice length, but I prefer Maria Glanz, personally.

Shin Yi Prince you should be able to find pretty easily. I think Parkside has them. I will look around a little more...

A nice white Mount Toro? Please let me know if you find one. I have had a difficult time locating one that is more stonei influenced rather than philippinenese.

I'm really glad to hear that you are enjoying it here. I think our plant habits can be very theraputic. Take care, if I find Shin Yi Prince, or other Marias, I'll post again.

I must have missed a post somewhere. Patrix, are you in chemotherapy? If so, I hope it is going well for you. That can be tough. I'm glad orchids can lift your spirits.

I've heard that Ruby Slippers is a particularly difficult Phrag to grow. Has anyone else heard that?

Orchid Inn has 10-14 cm and 16-20 cm Shin-Yi Price available (listed as Paph. Prince Edward of York 'Gold King' AM/AOS x sanderianum 'Dark Spider'). They also have 20-24cm and 26-30cm Mount Toro albums available.

Sam sells great plants and always uses the highest quality parents. He also may have larger sizes available if you e-mail him. He's got a lot of plants that he hasn't yet listed on his site. OI's website is:

way cool and exactly what I am looking for. I just treated myself to an ebay special from a vendor I have had excellent results from. He offered 10 previously bloomed phrags with second growths for 120.00 He only posted pictures of 4 blooms and 3 plants (all of my previous orders have been very satisfactory) one of them approaches Firestorm by appearance. They will arrive tagged but he refused to tell me what they all were. I can't wait, I will look for Firestorm but lets ask Phrag Guy where he got his from?

I saw the same posts on eBay but I'm looking for specific plants, i.e. I dont have the room for those plants. Please let us know what you got and send photos.
