Hans it looks like You are doing well with Your Cyps :)
It seems to be 2 different plants one more red than the other. Both nice  8)
Are You generally growing cyps in pots? If so, why not in the gound?
Nice to have the Cyp seasong started  ;D
Kind regards

Beautiful Anthony.

How about some details on your in-pot culture?

I'm sure Anthony will oblige, Carlo.... meantime, here is a reminder that in "The Rock Garden" SRGC Journal No. 109 (June 2002) ( Vol. XXVII Part 4) Anthony Darby contributed an article, "Cypripediums in the garden". Pages 319-324.

Hi Maggi how can we get hold of the Journal. I bought yesterday some Cypripedium shanxiense and calceolus seedlings from Laneside alpines. They are a long way off flowering.

Well, Dan, luckily you are youthful so you have time to wait!

You can contact Glassford Sprunt at glassfordsprunt@aol.com   He keeps the back issues of the Journal. He should have one in stock and will send you his postal address etc.
If you had been a member a year or so ago you'd have received a CD of all the SRGC Journals, (from the first up to no. 113, I think).

Not necessarily so, Maggi. Despite hearing about the electronic (up to 113) and being a member for the past 4 or 5 years, I have not received it. AND WOULD LOVE TO HAVE IT!

Hiya, Whinger! Poor Carlo, I have a horrible suspicion that the CD may have gone to the NYBG ? ::) :-[ :-\ :'(
I'll look into it for you!

Oh, crikey, am I mixing you up with the other Dan, who has just turned 23?  ??? But surely you worry about buying your girlfriend nice gifts, that doesn't suggest to me that you are 104, but who am I to suggest that romance is dead by that time, even if everything else is ?? :P!!

Hi all

As I have said before, you can add water but you cannot take it away. It can be wet, very wet, in Dunblane. That having been said, my mix comes from a recipe used in deepest Hampshire: 40% Seramis ; 40% Perlite (both retain water but has air spaces and you can omit the former, or use Tesco's 'Finest' cat litter); 10% loam and 10% fine or composted bark. A handful of crushed oyster (not cockle shell) as used for chickens benefits some species. This mix is also used to prepare a hole for garden grown plants.

The pot of 'Sabine' has stood out all winter come-what-may on a bed of sand. With species, quarter strength liquid feed once a fortnight, ensuring it has 'washed through' in between times. With robust hybrids, same time scale, but full-strength feed can be used.

Anthony.

I love that you make it sound easy, Anthony and Sabine is certainly a big strong girl! Do you use a "proprietary" feed? And if so, which?
