Very cool, Tom! Your stuff is always stellar. Maybe I could grow this one, as you describe. It sits in water too, right? I thought when I saw your compot that it was in peat so thank you for the explanation. Never seen sequoia bark so not familiar at all.We use one mix for this Section. It's a 6-1-1-1 mixture of Sequoia seedling bark, large perlite, #3 size charcoal and chopped NZ sphagnum moss . We use this mix from compot through adult stages of growth for Phrag. caricinum. Unlike other Sections which are repotted annually, this is one where we repot the adults every 2-3 years as long as the mix hasn't broken down. This clone will be repotted in early Spring, 2022. Here's a photo of the entire plant; it has a (1-2-1) configuration.
Wow. I had no idea. I thought it was fir! Turns out, I’m using sequoia all along!Thanks Bruch! The Phrag. caricinum 'FV' pot does sit in in tray of rain-water about 1" deep. Unless they've changed recently, Hausermann's uses Sequoia bark in their Paph. seedling mix. We tried substituting Orchiata bark in our mix, and the results were not as good.
