    Default Whew! New arrivals...

    I'm beat... we just had our local fall show. I volunteered so all together I was there 11 hours this weekend. I did buy some pretty cool plants. Here is a list of what I got, any cultural tips are greatly appreciated.

    Chiloschista usenoides (large mature plant)
    Angrecum subulatum
    Scaphosepalum verrucosum
    Scaphosepalum beluosum
    Phragmipedium wallisii
    Porroglossum mucusosum
    Pholidota uraiensis
    Cadetia taylori
    Pollardia obpiribulbon (Encyclia obpiribulbon)
    Trichoglottis brachiata
    Renanthera monachica
    Masdevallia Deimos (barlaeana X nidifica)
    Masdevallia strobelii
    Zoothrophion atropurpureum
    Psychopsis papilio
    Maxillaria brunnea
    Staurochilus loheriana

    Almost all are BS, a lot of them are in spike/bud. Thanks again for any cultural advice, especially on the Phrag, I really want it to do well.

    Those will keep you busy for awhile! I can't help at all. I've never heard of any of them except for the psychopsis one. Good Luck! And Happy growing.

    Phrag. wallisii is one of the long-petalled species, and will require much different culture than most other phrags. It appreciates very strong light levels, almost standard catt range if you can keep the air moving to cool off the leaves. It will not appreciate sitting in water and will probably rot its roots in short order--grow it more like a paph, evenly moist but never "wet".

    Perhaps most importantly, this and related species are *very* prone to basal rot, especially during the hot days of summer. Air movement is absolutely essential, and even then you want to be vigilant.

    But grown well, it is nothing short of spectacular when it blooms.
