    Likes bright shade
    Can someone translate that to footcandles for me please?
    My brain is shorting out trying to visualize it.

    I have been reading up on cypripediums and trying to learn as much about them since I read that article in the AOS magazine. I want them I want them! hehehe.

    There are some good books out there about growing native (and some non-native) cypripediums in the garden. I'm hoping to get them started in my garden next year... BD - you think they'd be kind enough to loan me that amazing plant for a starter That's an amazing specimin! Thanks for the pic.... that's what we call motivation!
