A wonderful and healthy Cypripedium which like cool conditions. Thank you Yijia for these photos, I have never seen such a well flowering Cyp. plectrochilon (and in a pot!).

A charming little orchid.... and growing very well, too.
 I must say, the specimen  to the right hand side in the first picture is certainly of the same species... no doubt about that, so many identical features.... 8)

Hi,

a stunning display. What medium do you grow this species in?

Here is a picture of one I just got off ebay.

It's smaller than I realised so I will have to keep it in a pot, rather than planting it out in the garden

Do you mean you plant all your Cypripediums in the garden!

Hi

Yes I plant all my cypripediums in a raised bed in the garden, but the rest are all hybrids which are usually more vigorous than the species.

I have just ordered a few species from Nature et Paysages, a French nursery specializing in carnivorous plants, with a small orchid selection. Couldn't help after admiring those beauties!  :-*

He said so in the first line.  I did not realise you were so serious.

Cyps are fit for introduction in the garden if the soil is prepared, have a look at these shots:
