Just arrived in spike. 4 growths and two new starts.
Looking good in it's bonsai pot, I think.

I miss my old kitchen w/ the green granite countertops. They'd look so good there. :(

Does my eyes fool me, or the plants sit on very thin pot?

Yep, it's about 2.5" deep. I don't find that the roots grow down so much as out with these. I was worried that the pot might be too shallow, but the glaze was so pretty (photo doesn't do it justice) and when I went to pot it, it worked out just fine.

Now that you have the two types, what do you see as differences??

Thanks

Congratualtions to the new arrival.It looks great. And now I see it that the spikes are so tiny normally. I hope I won´t break mine, before it flowered( I almost did so yesterday)

It's a Mexipedium xerophyticum Peter.

I'm still looking for one that is affordable..
I have a bonsai pot just like Heather's except I have a serissa bonsai growing in it... Anyways I have many pots to use.

I heard that phrag x mexipedium have been made, have any bloomed out yet?

Congrats! I love Mexipediums but the only Internet dealer in Canada that I know of that sells them wants $80 for seedlings... I'm trying to find some BS.
