An oldie but a goodie. I’ve had this plant 16 years or so. Had to divide it this year as it got too big to manage so I now have 5 different pots of it plus a single growth that I had to remove last September as it decided to grow over the rim of the pot…
This is from one of the larger divisions


And this is from last years escapee who decided to throw a spike… as it’s got a good root system already I thought I’d let it put on its show :)

Lovely but you’ve fallen foul of the curse of the predictive text. Until your system learns the word Phragmipedium, beware!
Oh boy…. I started the post on my phone and gave up, didn’t even notice the typo … ty :)

We live on Anglesey, North Wales. We moved back to the UK 3 years ago after 30 years in the SW of France.
This was the monster in January. The new growths would all have been outside the pot so it had to be sorted some how. All the divisions are showing good root growth so in a couple of years I’ll have multiple problems 😹49D2B315-90DF-43F4-B0C2-8CB68EEB40C6.jpeg
