    just got links to new paph established seedlings for sale at the meyers conservatory

    paph appletonianum var. hainanense http://troymeyers.com/direct/?126289

    paph wardii http://troymeyers.com/direct/?126482

    first come first serve, they usually sell out quickly! there are lots of other seedlings available, and by the time you read this there could be more paphs posted as well
    (there are also paphs lowii, philippinense var. roebelenii, spicerianum and sukhakulii seedlings for sale on the established seedlings page https://lab.troymeyers.com/flasking/founditems.php?view=seedlings (hope the link works)

    I was looking over the lists. Is it common to have so many failures??

    don't know. I think most of the seed is collected as dry as opposed to green pod; I've been told that sometimes weak seed can be flasked but if it goes to dry, then with sterilizing it can become non-viable (at least with phal hybrids I've heard that). sometimes a flasking is listed as 'failed' if there aren't going to be enough offspring to make it worth the while to make a mother flask and then replates (makes it more so since the first flask is given away to the seed donor for free if they supply pictures of the parents; if only a handful of flasks or only one, then money would be lost in making attempt)

    3 of those Paph offerings are from breedings I supplied seed from.

    If the roebelinii holds up like its parent then that one should be killer. It always has at least 7 flowers per spike, and sometimes has 8.

    I just got a flask of villosum v. boxallii, from a pod I sent in last fall....couldn't see wasting a perfectly good pod when it came on a plant!....(thanks Baodai!) Troy seems to have more flasks available..the plants are very vigorous and there are lots of them in the flask. Take care, Eric

    Eric,
    Let me know if you want more pod, I have gratrix, armeniacum, villosum (red form), micranthum and a few special one ... it is self cross from the greenhouse (I love those bees), So, it could be in the mix ... let me know
    Thanks,
    BD

    if you had lots of species pods I might be interested in some, a friend in nearby orchid society does flasking now

    Sure, anytime! .....but why not send it straight to Troy? Its a great way to distribute seed...the cost is minimal....and you could sell the plants from the flasks...
