    Very nice group shot! Are those all the slippers you have? I thought you had more!

    How do you water them? Must be a chore to lug them back and forth and very time consuming!

    The two mottled leaf ones are up on the third floor...Deception is in the kitchen. Other than that this is all of the slippers. There are 16 or so here I think.

    How do I water? I either take them out to the front porch or back deck. Back deck is easier w/ the rainwater but hose is out front. Yes, usually takes me about 2 hours or so if I am doing the whole lot of them at once.

    2 hours for 16 plants? You are in trouble. With the speed at which you are aquiring new plants you soon will be spending all your waking hours watering! LOL


    nice pics btw. Slippers sure are cool looking plants.

    No, I have 35 plants total. Well, I have some upstairs on the third floor so I have to lug those farther....Many days I don't do them all at the same time so it takes less...I don't mind anyway, I find it theraputic...

    2 hours for 16, just wait til you have more (U actually have more now, don't you?)

    U should get those large trays we talked about. It will save you so much time!

    Default Shhhhhh!!!!

    MEOW!!!



    I'm even - SB and paph gone...so had 36, will again...you guys have got to stop throwing plants at me...

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say that I find ity amusing how a while ago when I first posted pics, I had everything all pretty in cachepots and now that I've repotted so many, I really prefer them without! I am really enjoying seeing what is going on in through the clear pots.
