    Default Mexipedium

    So, I have been contemplating venturing into the world of cyps for a couple reasons...I don't have any and secondly they are pretty. Well, lately I have fallen in love with those affable diminutive orchids (pleurothalids) and came across Mexipedium. The info I have on them says they are fairly easy to grow as long as you provide enough light. I have a couple it true they are fairly easy to grow, is anyone familiar with growing them? I'm not sure where to find them, but I am sure with my resources I can find out where.

    Hi , I have a Phrag. mexipedium , it is not blooming size , from what I have read they like to dry more than the others and do better with a top dressing of oyster shell apparently they grow in one area of Mexico on limestone outcroppings , Plain leaf Paph. light . Hope this helps a little . Gin

    I can't speak of it with own experience but I have friends who have had them (note had!) They are not the easiest plants around and you really must look at the natural habitats for it an assimilate that just as Gin mentioned.
    Here in Sweden and Europe they are almost impossible to get.
    One thing is for sure..they are beautiful!
