I just use the blue stuff, like 'Miraclegrow'.

Sabine got a first for section 59 at Perth, but I suspect a couple of yellow blemishes (half pinky nail size areas where there is no chlorophyll) on the lowest leaves caused, no doubt, by conditions beyond my control did for it?

Be thankful Sabine didn't win a First in Glasgow, Anthony... there is a trophy for the best orchid in at the Glasgow show which, besides being pretty awful to look at has a marble base which weighs about half a hundredweight. Many apologies to the no doubt fabulous person for whom this trophy was commissioned... I merely give my personal opinion on its appearance!
I hope there will be loads of orchids of all sorts at the Glasgow show, delighting the eye and vying for glory! The Glasgow show, by the way, is on Saturday 5th MAY at the Milngavie Town Hall.

Fantastic to see calceolus in the wild Hans. I have never seen any cyps in nature.

I will be going Millungavvy Maggi and hope to have another cyp ready? I suspect secret Cyril will have a better one though? :-\ This time I don't intend to have a broken collar bone!!! ::)

Good luck, Anthony! I sincerely hope you do NOT have another broken bone, nor any of the other potential exhibitors, either... makes it so difficult to carry the show plants!

Hans (Johannes) nice Cyps and pics  8)
How tall are Your faciolatum? and how big are the flowers? It is sometimes said that the flowers are big but the stem short and it would be nice to know if there is a combination of big flowers on tall or medium stems +35 cm.

Hans J Nice pics and nice to see cyp in the wild.

Nice to hear Your mix Adarby. I would think that You might need big holes if Your garden is clay even with this mix.
Nice big Sabine You got. Are You planning of putting it in the ground or are You going for shows next year?

Hope there will come more!
Kind regards
Joakim

No plans to put 'Sabine' in the garden, Joakim. If it ain't broke, don't fix it is a good maxim. 8) I might repot it this autumn, though? It had two flowers last year and has seven this year. I bought is as a 'pot luck' 3 seedling from Paul Christian (who also sells Cymbidium goeringii Maggi) in 2001.

Joakim ,

It is a missunderstanding -I grow not any Cypripedium in my garden -I saw this plants before some years in nature .
Sorry but I dont remember about the high of this plants .
Why you write  C .faciolatum ? is calceolus wrong ? ( I'm not familar with this plants )

Joakim, that Cyp f. flower is very big - 12 cm!! The whole plant looks like Cyp calceolus and is a littler larger than macranthum - so 30-35 cm.  But I saw calceolus which are taller than 80 cm.
I am Hans from Austria.
