    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.

    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.
