Hans very nice and interesting how different the colour of the foliage is.
I bet many are interested how You grow them what media and if it has protection from rain or not.  8)

Nice to see someone managed to flower some spotted Cyps. I have some fantastic leaves but only one flowered. The rest all aborted unfortunately, think too much water collected on the leaves and rotted the main shoot. Next year hopefully!

dear all,
I have seen all the beautiful pics of cyps on the forum. I am a new member and I do some in-vitro-sowing on cyps and other orchids. Does anyone have seeds of cyps or other orchids?

OK, I see some of you are very active on the forum! I do some sowing in vitro of mainly hardy orchids, Cyps and some other species. I have some Dacts in the garden and Epipactis. I am also interested in bulbs and Arum like species. And many other plants. I do some butterfly/moth breeding as well. I have some young Cyps from seed. If you want to know more ... just ask.

Guus, sorry for the delay in my reply; I have been away. Are you in the Netherlands?

Guus,

Welcome to the forums.  Cyps are few and far between here in Aus, and I don't know for sure of anyone here who is growing them from seed.  Fascinating plants.  Thanks to a generous benefactor here in Aus I finally have one which hopefully may flower next year.  Very, very exciting!!  ;D

Again, welcome.
Cheers.
