I’ve recently started to collect walkeriana for a breeding program. I’m looking for divisions of plants with good flowers.

Let me check my greenhouse. I have a
walker mounted on cork bark that doesn't
seem over-happy in my greenhouse. It
has bloomed once since I've had it, but
doesn't seem inclined to put out new
growth. It might be happier with you.

Great... does it have a name?

It does have a name, but I can't recall the tag right this
minute. I've not gone out to the gh today because it's
been raining and I watered yesterday. I'll look at the tag
tomorrow and get back to you. Do you have any Phrag.
or Phal. species to trade?

0C94F88A-1B66-4B31-9E89-5C7B2B82667A.jpeg I have Phrag pearcei and that’s it. I breed Paphs and recently started to breed walkeriana. Attached is a photo of my pearcei. I do have an established division.

My walker is walkeriana v. coerulea 'Charlie' and is quite nice the best
I can remember. I have a pearcei 'Pink', but not just a plain, ole
pearcei. walker is five pbulbs and not showing new growth so far
this season...not dying just not happy in my gh conditions I think.
Might you have a photo of the division?

Very nice division and a good trade. I'll send you a PM with details
for an even swap.
