Yes , I got a Popow plant from this ebay vendor around the summer ( Popow was at these two Florida shows)I was recently on e-bay and noticed this vendor selling plants.
I am curious about them. They seem to be a German based company with
a US location. Has anyone felt with them? If so what is their plant quality?
Thank You for the info.Popow is indeed located in Germany.
I believe these listings are from a friend of Popow in the US, who helps with shows etc. As you may have seen, many of the listings are for delivery in the future. Popow is coming to a couple shows in the US and that corresponds to delivery. So I don't believe they have any significant growing facility in the US.
Popow Orchids is definitely reputable. You should expect quality plants. They are arguably one of the best sources of rare plants.
Best grown in an open compost -- I use medium bark ( 14mm ) and a good helping of perlite in plastic basket on a heated sand bed. This way the compost is virtually dry the next day so this way you can water almost every day with every other day giving the plant a good flushing so the next time you feed you will not be adding too many salts. Written quickly so I hope this makes sense!!Thank You for the info.
For the record I am also looking at some of your plants.
I'd like a Paph. philippinese, but I have had trouble with paths. in the past.
How are they grown?
Thank you for the offer. The plant they have on E-Bay is Paph. fairrieanum darkI am placing an order with Popow this week. All orders have to be in by Wednesday night. Please PM if you want to add to mine.
Oh I forget, I did mention this ebay vendors, Thanh from Springwater orchids, but I did forget to mention that I also get some Popow plants from Chad as well.Thanks Chad. Good to hear.
I was a bit taken aback by the reaction I got for sure.
