This is a discussion on Don Wimber within the Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, Cypripedium IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; My first Phrag bloom. These things do seem much easier than Paphs!...
My first Phrag bloom. These things do seem much easier than Paphs!
Nice blooms - congrats!
Easier, how so?
Well, for me, Paphs grow sooo slowly and don't put out many new roots. The Phrags seem to grow much faster and as someone in another post said, the Phrags are not so "picky" and generally more tolerant of imperfect conditions.
I find that Phrags are more "active" than Paphs but i still like the paphs as much.
I,ve got Phrag Don Wimber 4N as 1 of the parents of my Phrag Tara seedling , i can,t wait to see what it looks like
Nice job, Debbie. Congratulations! And Phrags aren't necessarily easy--many people have trouble blooming them, so that's an accomplishment!
