She doesn't seem to have anymore for sale...
Wim Hayley told me today she is going to list 1 Calapogon on her site on Ebay.

Hello Derek, I've bought one already.

Thanks for the message Craig,

I ordered one pink Calopogon. The white one is a bit expensive ;) indeed.


Thanks

Gerhard,
Where do you live (or rather garden)?

Dear Göte,

I´m from the South of Austria, near the border to Slovenia,

but the pict is from a part of my garden.

Mayby it looks like a swamp in USA ?

Dear gerhard,
I have been toying with the thougt to make a bog garden for years (Half a century actually :-[ ) and I once tried pogonia in a greenhouse but it only survivred a year.
Your picture is very inspiring So my question is really: How cold winters do you get?
All the best

Dear Göte,

my experiances were the same.In small pots orchids (Pogonia, Calopogon) never flower and never grew bigger.
My swamp is 10 years old, 4x 2 m² and 60cm deep with 6m³ peat.I have started with 3 Pogonia and 1 Calopogon.Now there are hundrets of Pogonia and many Calopogon inside.

I would like encourage you to biuld a swamp in your garden, as greater as better.You need a sonny place and a lot of rainwater.

In the first years i have lost a few Sarracenias in winter, especially S. minor and S. psittacina are susceptible to froozen temeratures.Here in clima zone 6b I cover the swamp with a "Frost protective cloth" (Is it the right word ?).With this pretection I have never lost a plant, and semihardy plants like Drosera binata, Drosera filliformis stay in the swamp while winter.

In my opinion the greatest point is to protect against wind (dehydration),It`s more important then protect against froozen temperatures.

Well, by this beautiful photograph, I think we can be sure the Calopogon are enjoying life in Southern Austria! 8) What a good display!
