Well, I do have some plants that would require a custom shipping crate - most of those are not paphs. I suppose the nice thing about paphs is I could always divide them back to a convenient shipping size, but then I have more plants and that is really not what I'm going for.I cannot do a field trip but nothing is too big to ship in my experience.
If you ever come up with a list or attend the Slipper Symposium in Kissimmee and bring plants, I’ll be first in line as a buyer.
Don't know about that one in particular, but most of my multiflorals do best warmer than I tend to keep my grow room. Especially anything with sanderianum in it. Which is why these are at a friend's greenhouse, they keep it way warmer than I can afford... Lows in the mid 60s I'd say.Rob, what do you think the essentials are for growth and blooming of your Michael Koopowitz?
Unfortunately in your case there isn't a trigger. One blooms warm, armeniacum blooms best after cold. Multiflorals x parvi are known to be very hard to bloom. Probably many never will, genetics is not a friend here. Awesome when they bloom...What do you think triggers the blooming cycle? My question is related to a cross I have with Michael Koopowitz as one parent and armeniacum is the other. I am having trouble triggering blooming. Growth is good.
