Cypripedium fargesii
« on: December 09, 2007, 04:33:10 PM »
I have just recieved 2 Cypripedium fargesii and was wondering what compost mix to use for them, as i know spotted leaved Cypripediums need some care.

There is some mention of the spotted varieties in the discussion on that thread.

Many of these spotted vars live in areas where there is ground water but no rain while they are in leaf. I grow mine in the alpine house and use a wick of capillary matting through the drainage hole into a trough of water.
