I’m sure they would have survived! I’ve found stonei to be a pretty easy grower, the seedlings are just slow, I swear they only put out one leaf a year…sorry your albums never arrived!Nice. I wonder how badly I would have killed my stonei album if They had gotten to me.
Thank you, I'm sure it will bloom eventually, you have beautifully grown plants! The smaller plants I have grow at a glacial place, although one just started a second growth this spring, so I'm hoping for a first bloom next year (this one started a new growth last year, and then bloomed this year). They definitely love heat, and kick into high gear at the peak of summer. Good luck!I would be happy with that too. It is absolutely magnificent. That is one species I would love to flower. I have one plant that is growing slowly but steadily. Maybe one day.
I looked through my old emails, and at the time I purchased it I asked about the cross, but all the vendor could tell me was that it came through Hawaii. The tag just says "paph. stonei" with no cross number, so a dead end there. I imagine that given the volume they import through Hawaii, it isn't surprising that some of them end up dissociated from their cross information. I have some named crosses from Sam growing on, so I'm interested to see how those turn out, but this is still a keeper in my book!The more I look at your plant and its flowers, the more I am enamoured! It's so gorgeous!
Any chance that you somehow could do some detecting to get to know the cross (ask the vendor, ask the former, or something along that line)?
